Victorian Case Study – Online HIRA Tool

As part of the effort to ensure active transport users are kept safe during construction periods, a route selection tool has been developed to help construction companies determine the choice of route that provides the safest outcomes to vulnerable road users (‘VRUs’).

The Human Impact Route Assessment (‘HIRA’) tool was developed by the Construction Trucks and Community Safety project route selection working group, including members from VicRoads and Aurecon who were part of the Metro Rail joint venture partnership.

The HIRA tool can be used by construction companies undertaking projects involving significant heavy vehicle movements to ensure their trucks are travelling on the safest routes, limiting interactions with pedestrians, bicycle riders and motorcyclists, or introducing suitable countermeasures to make particular locations safer.

The HIRA tool, along with an instructional video, is now accessible online through the VicRoads website.
