The ARC Smart Pavements Hub (SPARC) invites applications for a PhD-position in road pavement upgrade planning and scheduling.

SPARC Hub, which is a partnership between Monash and 7 other Australian Universities and 20+ Industry Partners, is embarking on a range of exciting research projects, offering an unprecedented opportunity for recent graduates to establish their postgraduate career in various engineering fields. The Hub offers a coherent PhD and Masters by research program for high achieving passionate students and is committed to create an intellectually exhilarating and vibrant environment towards excellence.

Each road upgrade causes some disruption - reducing the capacity of a road to fewer lanes, or a single lane with traffic signals, or even a complete road closure. Also, each disruption has consequences for congestion on the surrounding area and requires resources and incurs costs, but the pool of resources and the available budget are both limited at any time. Different road upgrades have different urgency, and potentially may need to be completed before a deadline.

The challenge is to plan all the upgrades such that sufficient resources are available, the budget is not exceeded, the urgent upgrades are scheduled in due time and disruption is minimised. For example, multiple upgrades along the alternative routes connecting major centres should not be executed at the same time but multiple upgrades along a single route should preferably be synchronised.

This project aims to optimise the scheduling of pavement upgrades so as to: (i) minimise the disruption to traffic across the Melbourne road network; (ii) ensure upgrades are completed in time; and (iii) match the work scheduled to the equipment and available appropriately skilled people.

(iv) Knowledge in the relevant research field including any publications in reputable journals
