ARRB and Queensland's Department of Transport and Main Roads signed a new agreement on September 3, 2020, to continue their NACOE joint research and development initiative through until at least 2026.
The National Asset Centre of Excellence (NACOE) helps deliver engineering excellence through cutting edge road research and innovation in areas such as pavements and asset management.
NACOE’s research contributes to improving road safety initiatives to help save lives, reduce our carbon footprint and deliver significant cost savings to the people of Queensland.
Established in 2013, the program uses research and testing that adopts international best practice to Queensland conditions.
The program has a particular emphasis on pavements and materials technology, and covers the following key discipline areas:
- Asset management
- Network Operations
- Road Safety
- Heavy Vehicle Management
