Asphalt Review


AAPA workshop series

AAPA workshop seriesInternational guests and local experts from all sides of road construction will travel to state capitals to discuss and share best practices, challenge existing norms, and lift-the-lid on solutions to keep the quality of your next road project up, and the costs down.

Built on the back of the resounding success of the 2014 workshop, which attracted over 900 participants around Australia, we expect an even bigger turnout at this year’s workshop.

Our audience will include contractors, consultants, engineers, government representatives and equipment manufacturers and suppliers who will join the discussion as we unravel what it takes to drive quality on a budget and remain competitive in today’s economy.


The workshop will provide insights every road project can benefit from, including access to:

• Steps to minimise risk and future-proof road assets;

• Understanding “what good looks like”: Unravelling public and organisational expectations;

• Measures to create an efficient and productive workforce;

• Case studies and learnings from flagship road projects within Australia and abroad ;

• Simple strategies to help produce quality roads in a challenging funding environment;

• International and local road construction experts who will help apply their know-how to your project; and

• Proven and emerging equipment, technologies and techniques delivering value
