A holistic approach to long-term needs is required to maintain the vast amount of unsealed roads in Australia. This article addresses the path to more sustainable road networks in Australia.

Unusual weather events severely affect Australian roads regularly and cause damage to the surface condition and overall safety. A holistic approach to long-term needs is now required to maintain the vast amount of unsealed roads in Australia.

Our wide brown landscape has nearly 600,000 kilometres of unsealed roads.

Rural roads which are typically unsealed have had Australian and international testing and research studies carried out over the years to improve their durability. Therefore different approaches can be adopted by local shires, where unsealed road maintenance incorporates the opportunity to incrementally strengthen the pavement, reduce maintenance frequency, improve drainage and extend the life of depleting quarried sources.

See the image above which compares a road treated with PolyCom Stabilising Aid to a section of untreated road using conventional methods.

How much is this material loss costing each year? Then multiply this by the thousands of Km's of roads per shire in Australia.

Local Shires now have the solution and a progressive approach to unsealed road maintenance where the existing pavement is enhanced through PolyCom Stabilising Aid.

To continue to add value to the community, Australia is being urged to be innovative in these tough economical times. PolyCom Stabilising Aid addresses this innovation required and is the path to more sustainable road networks in Australia. 

Are you aware that PolyCom Stabilising Aid has been used in Australian for 15 years?
