Through the Austroads' Pavement Technology Task Force, Austroads provides the lead forum in Australia and New Zealand on road pavement technology. Austroads manages pavement technology development and education, monitors international innovations, harmonises standards and codes of practice, and facilitates information exchange and technology transfer among road organisations in the public and private sectors.
Austroads has developed a number of distinctive guides, one of which deals with Pavement Technology in detail. Each Austroads guide has an associated task force comprised of senior representatives from Austroads jurisdictions and key stakeholders. Industry groups such as AAPA, AustStab, CCAA and Roading NZ are represented on the Pavement Technology Task Force. The purpose of the Task Force is to oversee the development and review of the guides. Task Force members advise on the scope, structure and broad content of the guides and facilitate development and ongoing maintenance of the guides.
