The improved use of locally available materials in road construction and maintenance can significantly reduce costs, particularly in rural and remote areas and for low-volume traffic roads.
This webinar will provide you with a holistic understanding of the key components which influence fit-for-purpose material selection for low to medium volume regional and rural roads.
The webinar focusses on the step-by-step guidance published in the Evaluation Tool and User Guide from Austroads project Sustainable Roads Through Fit-for-purpose Use of Available Materials. It will cover:
• material performance and risk assessment
• risk reduction techniques
• materials option assessment
• life cycle cost assessment process.
It will consider material properties, traffic, climate, material modification and stabilisation, and life-cycle-cost implications. Case studies will be presented to provide real-life, practical examples.
