An important roads conference is being planned in Australia for 2020. The Australian Pavement Recycling and Stabilisation Conference will be held at the Novotel Brighton Beach, Sydney on Wednesday 29th July 2020.

The conference marks the 25th Anniversary of the Australian Pavement Recycling and Stabilisation Association (of AustStab). The theme of this one-day technical conference is Pavement Recycling for Sustainable Roads and will cover research outcomes, stabilisation for Local Government, construction excellence and sustainability.

“The Pavement Recycling and Stabilisation Conference will be an important opportunity for road pavement asset managers to learn more about the sustainability and resilience of stabilised pavements,” said AustStab CEO Stuart Dack.

“It is being increasingly realised that pavement recycling and stabilisation, particularly through insitu processes, brings increased resilience and associated whole-of-life benefits, on top of those attributes already recognised by pavement engineers, including significant up-front cost savings, speed of construction and lack of public disruption, and most importantly, environmental benefits derived from reuse of existing insitu pavement materials.

“The 25th Anniversary of AustStab gives us the opportunity to both recognise the unique nature of AustStab as an organisation, but also to focus at our conference on the important attributes of sustainability and resilience that are able to be delivered by the insitu pavement recycling and stabilisation process.

“This will be a conference not to be missed by anyone involved in pavement design and construction that has an interest in pavement recycling and stabilisation.

“We’ll also be holding our Annual General Meeting and working group meetings following the conference for those interested in the activities of AustStab.

Held in conjunction with the conference will be the AustStab Annual Awards Gala Dinner at which the 25th Anniversary will be celebrated and presentations made of the annual AustStab Awards of Excellence, sponsored by Caterpillar.
