Quizzes (6 Marks):


Complete Moodle quizzes


Roadway Capacity Analysis Task (10 Marks):


    Road Authority in Victoria is currently considering to upgrade an existing suburban multilane road to a freeway in Melbourne due to severe traffic delays (based on the public complaints) during peak periods. As a traffic engineer working at Road Authority in Victoria, you were asked to collect data for the existing condition, analyse the existing condition and recommend whether converting the multi lane road to the freeway improves capacity and level of service. Over several months, you collected the following data:


Existing multilane road:

  • Lane width of 3.6m (12ft), total lateral clearance 1.8m (6ft) and about 6.25 access points per km (10 points per mile)
  • Two lanes per direction, divided multilane road in rolling terrain
  • Observed base free flow speed of approximately 80km/hr (50mi/hr)
  • Observed directional flow of (3000 + last four digits of your student ID ÷ 10) with corresponding PHF=0.90 and 2% trucks.
  • All motorists seem to be commuters or regular facility users.

Proposed freeway data:

  • Lane width of 3.6m (12ft), left side lateral clearance 0.9m (3ft) and about 2.5 ramps per km (4 ramps per mile)
  • Two lanes per direction, freeway in rolling terrain
  • Observed base free flow speed of approximately 110km/hr (70mi/hr)
  • Directional traffic flow is expected to increase by 25% including trucks but PHF is expected to remain the same.
  • All motorists are expected to be commuters or regular facility users.

Consider the following types for analysis (ignore the costs of converting multilane road to freeway):

  • Multilane road- existing case (4 marks)
  • Freeway (4 marks)

Also, compare and provide a detailed discussions on analysis outcomes. (2 marks).


Intersection Capacity Analysis Task (14 Marks)


    A City Council received a number of complaints about excessive delays at one of their local street intersection during morning peak period at the City Centre. As a traffic engineer working for the City Council, you were tasked with providing the best engineering solution to remedy the problem (if there is a problem). You performed a site visit and the following observations were made:

  • The intersection connects two-lane two-way cross-roads at approximately 90 degree angle.
  • There are right-turning lanes on North-South road. But site condition is such that one right- turn lane could be added on East-West road too but there is no space for left-turning slip lanes or additional through lanes. Small roundabout could also be considered. 
  • There were virtually no trucks during morning peak period.
  • Currently, the intersection is un-signalised and East-West road needs to GIVE WAY to North- South traffic.
  • Speed limit is 60km/hr at all approaches.
  • There is not much variation of traffic flow rate within morning peak hour.
  • Traffic volumes (veh/hr) during the peak period were observed as follows:
    • From South: 200 (left turn), 500 (through) & 100 (right turn)
    • From East: 150 (left turn), 100 (through) & 400 (right turn)
    • From North: 100 (left turn), 500 (through) & 100 (right turn)
    • From West: 150 (left turn), 100 (through) & 200 (right turn)
  • No annual traffic growth is expected for foreseeable future.
  • Other information can be assumed within Australian Standards and guides.

Consider the following types of intersections for manual analysis and design:

  • Un-signalised intersection- existing case (2 marks)
  • Un-signalised intersection- modified (2 marks)
  • Roundabout (2 marks)
  • Signalised intersection (2 marks)

Compare your manual analytical solutions with the outputs from SIDRA. Provide reason/s if there are any variations in the outputs. (4 marks)

Also compare alternative intersection controls and recommend the best intersection type (2 marks).

2 Portfolio

Assessment Title
Pavement Design

Task Description

This assessment item relates to the unit learning outcomes 3, 4, 5 and 6. It develops students' ability to understand Australian pavement design system, materials and tests and design of alternative pavement configurations (flexible pavements, rigid pavements and structural overlays) using current Australian Guidelines and Design Practices. Use of CIRCLY software (pavement design software) is highly recommended when required.

Quiz (6 Marks)

Complete quizzes online.

Design Task 1: Flexible pavement design (12 marks)

Geometric design, earth moving and subgrade evaluation of a new two-lane two-way road has been recently completed and now it is time for design of pavement in rural Victoria. A new flexible pavement is to be designed and you are tasked to develop flexible pavement alternatives for further consideration. The following are the project specific information supplied by the client (Road Authority in Victoria):

  • Two way total AADT=4000+(the last four digits of your student ID)/10
  • Pavement design period 30 years.
  • Project reliability 95%.
  • Lane width= 3.5m.
  • Directional distribution 60/40
  • Subgrade CBR value = 3 (if the last four digits of your student ID is < 3000), 5 (if the last four digits of your student ID is 3000 but < 6000) and 7 (if the last four digits of your student ID is ≥ 6000)
  • Heavy vehicles = 8% (if the last four digits of your student ID is < 3000), 9% (if the last four digits of your student ID is 3000 but <6000) and 10% (if the last four digits of your student ID is ≥6000)
  • Annual heavy vehicle growth is 1% throughout the design period
  • Other required information can be assumed within Australian Standard (Austroads Guides)
    • Summarise and calculate required flexible pavement design input parameters (2 marks)
    • Design the following flexible pavement alternatives using mechanistic or graphical methods (as applicable, appropriate or preferred!). You need to draw final design drawings for all cases (not to scale is acceptable but indicate all required dimensions and units of measurements). You must discuss/interpret everything you calculate or present.
      • Alternative 1: Unbound granular pavement with thin bituminous surfacing (2 marks)
      • Alternative 2: Full depth asphalt (E=2500MPa) (2 marks)
      • Alternative 3: Asphalt (E=3500MPa) with granular base (E=550MPa) (3 marks)
      • Alternative 4: Asphalt (E=2200MPa), granular base (E=550MPa), cemented subbase (E=5000MPa) (3 marks)


Design Task 2: Rigid Pavement design (9 Marks)

For the same road location and information (described above in Design Task 1), Road Authority in Victoria also asked you to develop rigid pavement design alternatives.

  • Summarise and calculate required rigid pavement design input parameters (1 marks)
  • Design the following rigid pavement alternatives using analytical or graphical methods (as applicable or appropriate or preferred!). You need to draw final design drawings for all cases (not to scale is acceptable but indicate all required dimensions and units of measurements). You must discuss/interpret everything you calculate or present.
    • Alternative 1: PCP pavement without concrete shoulder (4 marks)
    • Alternative 2: CRCP pavement with concrete shoulder (4 marks)


Design Task 3: Design of Flexible Asphalt Overlay (3 Marks)

A homogeneous section of a cracked asphalt surfaced granular pavement is situated in Melbourne where the WMAPT is 24°C. As the existing asphalt is cracked, it is proposed to mill 25 mm from the existing 50 mm thick asphalt prior to asphalt overlay. The following characteristic values were calculated from deflectograph deflection testing undertaken at a pavement temperature of 25 °C:

  • Measured Characteristic Deflection at 25°C = 0.87 mm
  • Measured Characteristic Curvature at 25°C = 0.30 mm.

Based on experience, the client (Road Authority in Victoria) advised that the designer considered that there was no need to apply a Seasonal Moisture Correction Factor to these measured deflections and curvatures. The design traffic loading (ESA) for this section is the same as described above (Design Task 1).

    • Design asphalt overlay on asphalt surfaced granular pavement using design charts. You need to draw final design drawings (not to scale is acceptable but indicate all required dimensions and units of measurements). You must discuss/interpret everything you calculate (6 marks)

Academic Integrity Statement

As a CQUniversity student you are expected to act honestly in all aspects of your academic work.

Any assessable work undertaken or submitted for review or assessment must be your own work. Assessable work is any type of work you do to meet the assessment requirements in the unit, including draft work submitted for review and feedback and final work to be assessed.

When you use the ideas, words or data of others in your assessment, you must thoroughly and clearly acknowledge the source of this information by using the correct referencing style for your unit. Using others’ work without proper acknowledgement may be considered a form of intellectual dishonesty.

Participating honestly, respectfully, responsibly, and fairly in your university study ensures the CQUniversity qualification you earn will be valued as a true indication of your individual academic achievement and will continue to receive the respect and recognition it deserves.

As a student, you are responsible for reading and following CQUniversity’s policies, including the Student Academic Integrity Policy and Procedure. This policy sets out CQUniversity’s expectations of you to act with integrity, examples of academic integrity breaches to avoid, the processes used to address alleged breaches of academic integrity, and potential penalties.

What is a breach of academic integrity?

A breach of academic integrity includes but is not limited to plagiarism, self-plagiarism, collusion, cheating, contract cheating, and academic misconduct. The Student Academic Integrity Policy and Procedure defines what these terms mean and gives examples.

Why is academic integrity important?

A breach of academic integrity may result in one or more penalties, including suspension or even expulsion from the University. It can also have negative implications for student visas and future enrolment at CQUniversity or elsewhere. Students who engage in contract cheating also risk being blackmailed by contract cheating services.

Where can I get assistance?

For academic advice and guidance, the Academic Learning Centre (ALC) can support you in becoming confident in completing assessments with integrity and of high standard.
