ARRB published Best Practice Local Government Guides

The first tranche of Best Practice Local Government Guides (Commonwealth Grant Agreement PT51916) have been made available to councils around Australia.

The four guides comprise:

  • Best Practice for Road Making Materials
  • Best Practice for Unsealed Roads
  • Best Practice for Sealed Roads; and
  • Best Practice for Bridge Maintenance

Australian Road Research Board chief executive officer Michael Caltabiano said the guides “are testament to a reimagining of how to engage with local governments, in their language, embracing tailored content in an intuitive format that is easy to use delivering operational and maintenance efficiencies”.

The ARRB will be delivering workshops and webinars in the coming months to assist councils in gaining optimum benefit from the best practice guides.

The guides will go live on the ARRB website from 3 April and may then be uploaded free of charge to individual networks/websites at that time.
