Higher steer axle masses on our roads

Join us for a webinar on Jul 17, 2017 at 11:00 AM AEST.
 
Austroads has recently published research on the impact that increased steer axle mass limits will have on the pavement. This Austroads project addresses the needs of industry particularly those operating road trains in remote areas. The research conducted by the Australian Road Research Board included a pavement lifecycle cost analysis for a range of heavy vehicle fleet on roads across Australia. The outcome was the first evidence based research in over 20 years that has resulted in an increase in axle mass limits. This webinar covers the industry’s needs for higher limits, vehicle component ratings, the engineering basis for a higher limit and the impact on our roads.

Anthony Germanchev is the Team Leader of the Freight and Heavy Vehicles Department at the Australian Road Research Board and works alongside the pavement engineers to improve freight productivity on a sustainable road network. Anthony specialises in evaluating the safety, productivity and impacts of heavy vehicles and has taken on key roles in national research activities including the OECD’s Moving Freight with Better Trucks study. Anthony is an executive member of Australia Road Transport Suppliers Association and the ATA Industry Technical Council. He will be sharing learnings from recent research projects on the effects of vehicles on road pavements.

Participants please note - the session will commence at 11:00 am AEST (Australian Eastern Standard Time). There may be time zone differences that apply. It is recommended that you connect to the webinar 15 minutes prior to allow sufficient time for potential connection delays.
