About Transurban:

As one of the world’s largest toll-road operators, everything we do works to get people where they want to go, as quickly and safely as possible – from designing and building new roads to researching new vehicle and road safety technology.

We design our roads for the long term, ensuring they’ll deliver real and lasting benefits to cities and their communities. While you’re thinking about getting home on time today, we’re also thinking about how you’ll get home 10 or 20 years from now.

We’re also a technology company – we research and develop innovative tolling and transport technology that makes travel easier for everyone.

As an industry leader, we set high standards for our performance on social and environmental issues, and we invest in both to create social inclusion and manage our environmental impacts. We’re also a member of our local communities. We build parks and bike paths, create new community facilities, and plant trees for wildlife habitats – helping people connect with each other and their neighbourhoods.

About DriveSafe DriveAware:

DriveSafe DriveAware is an objective, evidence-based measure of cognitive fitness to drive designed for use by health professionals. Administered in 15 minutes via iPad, the screening tool measures a driver’s awareness of the driving environment and his/her own abilities related to driving. The app can be used with any person whose ability to manage the cognitive aspects of driving may be impaired by a medical condition, injury, or the ageing process.

DriveSafe DriveAware has excellent sensitivity and specificity and accurately predicts which patients require an on-road assessment, and those most likely to pass or fail such an assessment. This information allows doctors and other health and rehabilitation professionals to make objective decisions when advising their patients regarding driving.
