Pavements Task Force & Projects

Pavements Task Force

The Austroads Pavements Task Force is the lead forum in Australia and New Zealand on road pavement technology. The Task Force is comprised of senior representatives from Austroads jurisdictions, the Australian Local Government Association (ALGA), and key industry stakeholders including AAPA, AustStab, CCAA and Roading NZ.

The Task Force manages pavement technology 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. Members also advise on the scope, structure and broad content of the Guide to Pavement Technology and facilitate its development and ongoing maintenance.

The Task Force coordinates research that is working towards:

  • providing guidance on improved design and materials management for enhanced pavement structural performance 
  • improving our understanding of material characteristics and vehicle interactions for improved quality and life of road surfacings including enhanced test methods and delivery techniques 
  • providing guidance on the management of scarce and quality resources (particularly in rural locations) 
  • ensuring the Austroads Guides are updated and improved with integration of jurisdictional supplements.

Pavement Projects
