WORKSHOP INFORMATION

The Unsealed Roads Best Practice Guide was first published in May 2020 and captures current best practice in managing unsealed roads. The Guide is targeted at local governments (and other organisations) that are tasked with designing, constructing, and maintaining unsealed roads in Australia.

This workshop will provide participants with a comprehensive overview of the Guide, as well as practical training on the interpretation and application of the various elements covered in the Guide, including road safety and design, construction and maintenance, as well as managing and operating an unsealed road network.

Each module will be presented by a resident ARRB specialist and will include both technical background information and practical case studies.
