Smart Pavements Now proves a winner

by Australian Road Research Board on October 2, 2019

More than 60 delegates attended each of the three days of ARRB’s 2019 Smart Pavements Now Masterclass Event held in Melbourne in September.

Smart Pavements Now featured more than 40 presentations on all aspects of pavements over the three days – from recycled and reclaimed material use in asphalt, to road safety and asset management.

The event also featured a hands-on exhibition of measurement devices used in the pavement and data collection space, as well as a field trip to ARRB’s Accelerated Loading Facility (ALF) in outer Melbourne and evening networking functions.

Delegates included representatives from local government, consultants, road agencies and universities. All States and territories in Australia were represented, as well as delegates who travelled from overseas.

It is the first medium-sized paying delegate event that ARRB has held within its new headquarters in Port Melbourne.

All speakers and presenters were from ARRB, sharing their knowledge and latest trends on all things pavements with delegates in a nimble, interactive learning environment.

Initial delegate feedback has been most positive, and there have also been queries around whether ARRB can hold similar events in other areas around Australia, or in-house events for selected groups within the pavement industry.
