This thesis examined the challenges to applying effective crisis management practices in large-scale Australian road transport systems operating under commercial private public partnership settings. The thesis investigated the application of theoretical approaches to crisis management, as standard frameworks, at selected large transport locations and evaluated current states of emergency crisis response practise against these frameworks. The research identified a range of options for enhancing crisis and emergency management and crisis preparedness within transportation networks.
