New framework for recycled materials

Austroads has this week published a new edition of Guide to Pavement Technology Part 4: Recycled Materials.

The publication presents updated information on the use of waste material in roads and provides a high-level approach to determine the suitability of recycled materials for construction and maintenance of road pavements and surfacings.

The Guide covers off on the current use of reclaimed asphalt pavements, industrial slag, recycled crushed glass, construction and demolition waste, concrete and masonry, fly ash, plastics and crumb rubber in pavement construction. It was developed concurrently with the Technical Basis of Austroads Guide to Pavement Technology Part 4E: Recycled Materials report, and should be read in conjunction with this document.

Austroads will also hold a webinar on Thursday, 18 August to discuss the updated guide. You can register to take part here.
