The National Asset Centre of Excellence (NACoE) has been successfully renewed for the 2019-2024 period under a new agreement between the Australian Road Research Board (ARRB) and Queensland’s Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR).
“NACoE is a great joint initiative that has been helping deliver engineering excellence through cutting edge road research and innovation in areas such as pavements and asset management,” ARRB said in a statement. “It saves lives, reduces our carbon footprint and delivers millions of dollars in savings for the people of Queensland.”
The program uses research and testing that adopts international best practice to Australian/Queensland conditions.
The research program covers the following key discipline areas: pavements; asset management; structures; others; network operations; road safety; heavy vehicle management; and sustainability.
