EDM Banner_Best Practive Guides Workshop


FREE Workshops

August & September 2019

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 structures. 

These free half-day workshops are designed to gather your input and have your voice heard regarding the challenges and opportunities you see at the local government level.
