"As part of the LGA Research and Development Scheme, the City of Salisbury on behalf of a collection of Councils secured funding to undertake trials in asphalt surfacing. The City of Salisbury engaged Tonkin Consulting to lead the project with support of the Australian Road Research Board (ARRB) and the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI).

This project is a trial of new asphalt mixes with the results to inform the development of a specification for long life asphalt for low trafficked roads. Most asphalt specifications to date are designed for heavy traffic loads and to withstand traffic damage. The majority of local government sealed roads have low traffic volumes and deteriorate more by environmental effects of oxidation and soil movements rather than by traffic damage."
