FREE Webinar: Local Government Roads: Best Practice Guides

by Australian Road Research Board on August 12, 2019

EDM Banner_Best Practive Guides Workshop

Tuesday 10 September at 2PM AEST.

Join us for this FREE webinar.

As part of the 2019-2020 Federal Budget, ARRB - your National Transport Research Organisation - is undertaking the development of a series of guides to assist local governments in enhancing their capabilities in road asset management and maintenance, with a focus on regional areas.

As part of this, we are formulating a suite of guides that will support national and international best practice in the procurement, design and management of materials for road construction, sealed & unsealed roads and bridge structures.

This webinar will summarise the findings from the workshops as well as provide those that could not attend in person a chance to have their say.
