Enhancing the quality of life for all Queensland communities

A road surface should provide a durable, even running surface that is safe and reliable level of service for all road users. When the road surface condition becomes poor or defective, rehabilitation or resurfacing work is needed to restore the pavement surface to the required level of service.
Alternatively, a change in traffic volume may necessitate an upgrade of the pavement’s structural capacity, width and/or alignment.

Selecting the most suitable and cost-effective strategy

for pavement rehabilitation continues to be a significant challenge to the road asset owner. It is essential that technical professionals understand the treatment options available to maximise pavement service life, and optimise budget allocations for their projects.

This workshop is primarily aimed at staff involved in the areas of road planning, design, construction and maintenance of roads including, but not limited to:

• Road asset managers

• Engineers

• Designers

• Inspectors

• Technical officers

• Lectures

• Case Studies

Conclusion of this workshop, participants will have a practical understanding of:

• pavement design principles

• common causes of defects

• the importance of maintenance

• planning resurfacing programs

• selecting appropriate seals

• when to rehabilitate

• rehabilitation designs

• level of service
