Former ARRB intern wins John Monash Scholarship

by Australian Road Research Board on November 26, 2020

Former ARRB intern Jess Coldrey has been awarded a prestigious John Monash Scholarship, allowing her to further her work on sustainable infrastructure started at the National Transport Research Organisation.

As an ARRB intern in 2018/19, Jess compiled the initial literature review on the use of plastics in roads in Australia, which has kick-started work towards Australia having specifications for the use of plastics in roads.

ARRB is leading this research work, and the resulting specifications are likely to be delivered in 2021.

The John Monash Scholarship will allow Jess to study a Master of Humanitarian Engineering with Management at Warwick University in England, focusing on sustainable infrastructure.

Through her work, she aims to harness the underutilised potential of infrastructure to address social and environmental needs. Her friends at ARRB will watch her progress with interest and pride.
