The purpose of the trial was to investigate the impact of allowing motorcyclists to legally lane filter on traffic congestion and road safety. Some questions which needed to be looked at included:

• Does lane filtering affect travel time for motorcyclists and general traffic?

• Does lane filtering affect the overall level of congestion?

• Does lane filtering affect road safety for all road users?

The final report for the trial was received by TfNSW in November 2013. TfNSW has analysed its contents in close consultation with the NSW Police Force.
