Guide to asset management: - technical information part 11: techniques to reduce social and environmental impacts

The third edition of the Austroads Guide to Asset Management (GAM) has been produced to provide guidance to road agencies on the application of contemporary ‘whole of organisation’ asset management practice to road networks. The Guide consists of 15 Parts across three broad themes: management overview, asset management processes, and technical information. The five Technical Information Parts provide detailed guidance relating to specific asset types, including, pavements, bridges, and intelligent transport systems. The target audience is technical and applied users. Part 11 of the GAM addresses sustainable maintenance techniques used in Australia and New Zealand. Significant environmental, social and economic benefits can be achieved by using alternative road materials in maintenance activities. The assessment of how various maintenance and preservation techniques impact sustainability is, however, an evolving area.
