Game-changing sustainability projects

It’s possible to build better, more durable transport infrastructure using recycled materials. Fewer potholes and road failure, improved durability, reducing landfill and producing better environmental outcomes.

NTRO|ARRB leads the way in innovating and implementing recycled material use in road and rail infrastructure.

We help inform all levels of government about best practice use and specification development for plastic, recycled glass, reclaimed asphalt pavement, concrete, crumb rubber and other recycled roads.

We work with all levels of government on game-changing sustainability projects for their roads, safely and successfully incorporating recycled, new and emerging materials into the road network.
