Professor Geoff Rose is Director of the Institute of Transport Studies in the Department of Civil Engineering. In addition to leading the on-line Master of Transport degree, Geoff teaches CIV4283 Transport Planning and CIV5314 Planning Urban Transport Systems. Geoff’s research interests cover cycling, walking, travel demand management and sustainable transport policy.

Geoff’s recent research has focused on enhancing understanding of usage patterns and policy issues associated with motorized mobility scooters, electric bicycles and motorcycles. He is also undertaking research on factors influencing usage of parking for cars and bicycles at railway stations, opportunities to improve the performance of urban railway level crossings, and the legislative requirements on-site parking at new apartment developments. As part of the Sustainable and Effective Public Transport Graduate Research Interdisciplinary Program, Geoff will be supervising doctoral research on mobility as a service.

Past projects

Safer cycling and the urban road environment

The proposed study is the first comprehensive study in Australia that combines academic, government and community efforts to enhance cycling activity while addressing safety concerns. The study takes an innovative, multi-disciplinary approach to understanding the issues contributing to cyclist injury with a particular focus on the urban road environment. The proposed study will develop new road designs which will improve the urban cycling experience. Australia’s first cycling simulator (BikeSim) will be built as part of this study and will be used to safely evaluate the new road prototypes which will be designed to improve cyclist safety and maintain the efficiency and mobility of vehicles.

A systemic model to underpin enhanced management of powered-two-wheelers as part of a safe, sustainable transport system

While traditionally viewed as a road safety problem, powered-2-wheelers (i.e. motor scooters and motorbikes) potentially offer a range of mobility and environmental benefits. This research will deliver an evidence base to underpin effective management of the outcomes associated with the use of P2Ws in urban areas. The research will help to address the significant economic, social and environmental problems associated with urban transport. A key feature of the approach to be employed in this project is that it facilitates engagement of the industry participants as co-researchers in the process of developing and applying a policy sensitive model to explore the consequences of alternative strategies for managing P2W use.

EcoDrive as a road safety tool for Australian conditions

Eco Drive initiatives encourage drivers to modify their driving style to conserve fuel. Overseas results suggest a reduction in crashes can also be achieved. This project will critically examine past evaluations and recommend an Eco Drive model suitable for Australia.
