Expanding ARRB's influence across the waste stream

by Australian Road Research Board on October 1, 2019

Using recycled and reclaimed products in roads is an important area in which the Australian Road Research Board can help with a significant issue for the nation.

Recently ARRB has met with two Federal Government Ministers to discuss this important topic.

ARRB cheif executive officer Michael Caltabiano took the opportunity when meeting with The Hon. Sussan Ley MP, Minister for the Environment, to discuss ARRB’s proposal to develop national, harmonised specifications for the use of recycled and reclaimed products in roads.

We were also fortunate enough to have the Hon. Trevor Evans MP, Australia’s first Assistant Minister for Waste Reduction and Environmental Management, visit our headquarters at the National Transport Research Centre in Melbourne.

He visited along with representatives from environment departments, government and road construction industry organisations, for an industry event to hear how ARRB’s proposal to optimise the use of recycled and reclaimed products in roads could effectively take waste directly from the waste stream.
