Sustainable Road Pavements

We see sustainability as the only way to do business. Through our partnerships we support wellbeing, diversity, environment, education and innovation. It’s our way of improving the world we’ll live in tomorrow.

Fulton Hogan is committed to the transition of construction and maintenance in the road sector from a linear to a circular economy by reusing, recycling, creating and circulating. We understand that our roads are not linear rubbish tips; they are highly complex engineering structures and a key to economic development. Any sustainable product or process used in pavements must maintain the performance of the pavement, have a consistent quality and supply and must be cost competitive to current processes.

We look forward to demonstrating how our environmentally sustainable solutions can deliver best for network and community outcomes.

DOLRE Low Stress Parapet System

The adoption of Australian Bridge Standard AS5100:2017 which references the MASH-2016 standards has rendered a lot of bridge traffic barrier assets obsolete. Most bridge decks have not been designed with the structural capacity to meet the needs of higher capacity, traditionally-designed bridge traffic barriers. The reason: transfer of impact energy.

An innovative solution to this problem comes in the form of a bridge traffic barrier system known as the DOLRE Low Stress Parapet System. This world-leading barrier system has been fully crash-tested to European Standards, simulated to US MASH TL4 requirements and approved by ASBAP for use throughout Australia.

DOLRE is an innovative product in a niche market for bridge refurbishment. In Australia, DOLRE complies with Australian standards AS/NZS3845:2015 and AS5100:2017, is ASBAP approved and has been independently approved by two consulting bridge engineers.
