Local Government Roads: Best Practice Guides
Tuesday 10 September 2019, 2PM AEST
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.
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 and provide those that could not attend in person a chance to have their say.
