Definitions

Subdivision 690000 - Transport, covers R&D directed towards improving the efficiency and safety of transport systems for moving freight, passengers or livestock by ground, water, air or any combinations of these (e.g. sea-air transport) or by any other means.

This subdivision includes R&D directed towards oceanic currents and processes that impinge on sea safety or navigation. It includes R&D directed towards minimising emissions to the environment from transport. This subdivision has five groups:

    690100 - Ground Transport
    690200 - Water Transport
    690300 - Air Transport
    690400 - Other Transport
    690500 - Prevention and Treatment of Pollution

    Exclusions:


      R&D directed towards:

      (a) the transportation of plants and primary plant products, livestock and primary livestock products is included in Subdivision 620000 Plant Production and Plant Primary Products and Subdivision 630000 Animal Production and Animal Primary Products respectively; and

      (b) transport systems as an integral part of urban planning is included in Subdivision 680000 Construction.

      Group 690100 - Ground Transport

      This group covers R&D directed towards road passenger or freight transport, long or short distance bus transport (incl. tramway), railway transport, taxi and other road transport.

      This group includes R&D directed towards services to ground transport such as parking services, toll bridge, weighbridge, container terminals and punt operations and towards improving road safety. This group has four classes:


        690101 - Road safety
        690102 - Other road transport
        690103 - Rail transport
        690199 - Ground transport not elsewhere classified

        Exclusions:


          R&D directed towards minimising emissions to the environment from ground transport is included in Group 690500 Prevention and Treatment of Pollution.
      Group 690200 - Water Transport

      This group covers R&D directed towards international, coastal or inland water transport.

      This group includes R&D directed towards services to water transport such as stevedoring, water terminals, ports and other services to water transport and towards oceanic currents and processes in so far as they impinge on sea safety or navigation. This group has three classes:


        690201 - International sea transport
        690202 - Coastal water transport
        690203 - Inland water transport

        Exclusions:


          R&D directed towards minimising emissions to the environment from water transport is included in Group 690500 Prevention and Treatment of Pollution.
      Group 690300 - Air Transport

      This group covers R&D directed towards international and domestic air transport for passenger, freight and livestock. It includes R&D directed towards other non-scheduled air and space transport. This group has two classes:


        690301 - Air transport
        690302 - Space transport

        Exclusions:


          R&D directed towards minimising emissions to the environment from air transport is included in Group 690500 Prevention and Treatment of Pollution.
      Group 690400 - Other Transport

      This group covers R&D directed towards multi-modal transport and intermodal materials handling.

      R&D directed towards pipeline transport and other transport not elsewhere classified is also included in this group. This group has three classes:


        690401 - Multimodal transport
        690402 - Intermodal materials handling
        690499 - Transport not elsewhere classified

        Exclusions:


          R&D directed towards minimising emissions to the environment from other transport is included in Group 690500 Prevention and Treatment of Pollution.
      Group 690500 - Prevention and Treatment of Pollution

      This group covers R&D directed towards minimising emissions to the environment from transport. This group has four classes:


        690501 - Ground transport
        690502 - Water transport
        690503 - Air transport
        690504 - Other transport
