Concrete Road Pavement Value and Asset Preservation

Wednesday 10 April 2019

Location: OJW room, Level 12 S Block
QUT Gardens Point campus, Brisbane

Time: 4.30pm - 6.30pm

About the Forum

The modern concrete road pavement produces a high quality, heavy duty asset at low initial cost, with low maintenance requirements, and with high-performance properties.

There are many major concrete road pavements in NSW which are now reaching their design lives and which have demonstrated high performance over that period. This forum will present concrete road pavement value information and discuss pavement performance properties including ride, skid resistance and low noise options.

Asset preservation interventions are required as assets age. Where pavement repairs are required, the advances in rapid repair technologies enable such repairs to be carried out on concrete pavements with minimum interruptions or delays to users. If required, modern diamond grinding techniques can restore surface properties including skid resistance and surface ride quality, and can provide low road/tyre noise qualities to a new or ageing surface.

As a pavement continues to age towards its design life consideration may be given to its eventual replacement, especially where traffic loadings and frequencies have exceeded the original design considerations. Rather than dispose of the remaining value in the existing asset, concrete overlay options can provide very cost-efficient means to significantly extend the life of the asset and to increase its load carrying capacity if required. These options can be completed in much shorter construction times than full replacement, thus minimising road user delays.
