Online Resources - Design and Specifications
Often we are asked for advice on design and specifications relating to stabilised pavements and recycled pavements. AustStab recommend that interested bodies contact member geotechnical consultants or designers (Click here for more information) and consult the association webpage for information on design resources (Click here for more information).
When executing the works, AustStab has developed a series of Model Specifications that are free to download (Click here for more information) and use an AustStab ARRB accredited contractor to complete all works (Click here for more information) .
We take this opportunity to thank our members for the terrific contributions that they have made to the association in 2012. We hope that you have a safe and happy break and look forward to a prosperous new year for all.
