Australia’s population relies heavily on our road network for providing access to communities, enabling movement of goods and services, and facilitating educational, recreational and tourist pursuits.
With over a third of the cumulative network length consisting of sealed roads, it is important that their design, construction and ongoing condition is appropriately planned, executed and managed to ensure that road user safety and community expectations are satisfied.
This workshop is based on the Sealed Roads Best Practice guide content, and will assist participants in gaining an understanding and appreciation for the major aspects involved in the design, construction and management of sealed roads.
