Transport SIG PD: Human Factors Integration For Major Road Tunnel Project


6:00 pm - 7:00 pm


Bookings closed


Zoom Meeting

Event Type

Major tunnel projects impact three major stakeholder groups: operators, maintainers, and motorists, therefore the design must carefully consider each of these groups in terms of the physical and cognitive ergonomics of the tunnel and control systems and how to design for driver behaviour during normal and degraded operations. Over several major projects in Australia, a scalable, and consistent approach has been successfully implemented which ensures that human factors interventions are appropriate at both the package level and at the system of systems level. This approach allows effective collaboration at the package level, with ownership of human factors issues and requirements remaining with the package designers, and overall human factors assistance, assurance and specialist support resting with the human factors specialist.
