Improved management of unsealed roads

Over the last 15 years ARRB Group has undertaken research on finding better ways to minimise maintenance, improve safety and reduce adverse impacts on the environment by unsealed roads. This paper covers the latest findings and best practices relating to dust suppression, safety improvements, minimising gravel loss, how to make better use of local materials and estimating, for asset management purposes, the performance of a road network based on the recently released deterioration models. It also covers the many lessons learnt and practical aspects raised by thousands of practitioners that have attended over 200 workshops conducted across Australasia over the last 10 years.
