New dates announced for AustStab 2021 Conference

Pavement Recycling and Stabilisation Association AustStab has revised the date for its Australian Pavement Recycling and Stabilisation Conference, with the event now scheduled for Wednesday, 20 October 2021 at the Novotel Brighton Beach, Sydney.

This follows its earlier decision to postpone these events due to the evolving and ever-changing COVID-19 situation across Australia and in particular the Sydney region.

The theme of this one-day technical conference is ‘Pavement Recycling for Sustainable Roads’ and will cover research outcomes, stabilisation for local government, construction excellence and sustainability.

“The Pavement Recycling and Stabilisation Conference will be an important opportunity for road pavement asset managers to learn more about the sustainability and resiliency benefits of stabilised pavements,” AustStab Chief Executive Officer Stuart Dack said.

“It is being increasingly realised that pavement recycling and stabilisation, particularly through insitu processes, brings increased resiliency and associated whole-of-life benefits on top of those attributes already recognised by pavement engineers, including significant up-front cost savings, speed of construction and associated lack of public disruption and, most importantly, environmental benefits derived from reuse of existing insitu pavement materials.”

“This will be the 26th anniversary of AustStab and having missed the chance last year to celebrate 25 years, we’re looking forward to the opportunity to both recognise the unique nature of AustStab as an organisation, but also to focus at our conference on the important attributes of sustainability and resilience that are able to be delivered by pavement recycling and stabilisation processes.”

“This will be a conference not to be missed by anyone involved in pavement design and construction that has an interest in pavement recycling and stabilisation.”

The full three day program also offers the opportunity to play as well with a social, but very competitive golf and putting competition preceding the conference. Following the conference will be the AustStab Annual Awards Gala Dinner at which the 26th anniversary will be celebrated and presentations made of the annual AustStab Awards of Excellence, sponsored by Caterpillar. AustStab will also conduct its Annual General Meeting the following day for those interested in the activities of AustStab.

Full registration details for the conference and associated AustStab AGM and social events are available on the AustStab website at
