Abstract/Summary Implementing regional transport strategies, plans and policy programs has proven to be easier said than done. A number of policy implementation frameworks have been discussed in the literature, such as Hogwood and Gunn, which can be used to evaluate good practice in the implementation of urban transport policy instruments. In the face of the growing challenge of addressing road traffic congestion, incident management has become an increasingly important strategy in urban areas to enable better use of the existing road infrastructure for cars, buses and trucks. Traffic incident management seeks to reduce the impact of non-recurrent events in reducing road capacity at critical locations and times, which result in costly delays, secondary incidents and increased vehicle emissions. This paper aims to analyse the implementation of traffic incident management in the Brisbane metropolitan region using theoretical policy implementation frameworks and following on from the paper by Ison and Rye to identify the key success factors for effective implementation of regional traffic incident management.
