ARRB renews partnership with TMR till 2028

The Australian Road Research Board (ARRB) is proud to announce its renewed partnership with the Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR), extending the National Asset Centre of Excellence (NACOE) research program through to 2028.

NACOE is an initiative between TMR and ARRB that aims to unlock innovation and maximise knowledge transfer through different projects to improve and maintain Queensland’s Road network.

The research program had its inception in 2013, and since has worked on various successful projects including the introduction of High Modulus Asphalt (EME2) and the increased use of recycled materials in pavements.

Neil Scales OBE, Director General, Department of Transport and Main Roads is pleased to see the research program extend until 2028. View his LinkedIn post here.

ARRB National Director for Strategy & Innovation, Matthew Bereni, said that the renewed partnership would continue to deliver important work that would benefit all Queenslanders through safer, accessible, more resilient, and more sustainable transport infrastructure in Queensland.

“The NACOE partnership gives ARRB’s leading experts an opportunity to develop and implement cutting-edge technology in Queensland. TMR’s visionary leadership in the areas of road safety and sustainable transport infrastructure technology should be commended,” Mr Bereni said.

ARRB looks forward to continuing its collaboration with local and state governments to improve Australia’s road and transport network in all states and territories.
