The Road Maintenance Award is available to members of the MWOA to encourage professional development through participation in a sponsored project. The Award enables the recipient to learn more about cost-effective and sustainable alternatives to traditional soil stabilisation such as PolyCom Stabilising Aid, which creates a stronger, longer lasting pavement and reduces re-sheeting, offering reductions in carbon emissions, water usage, council resources and maintenance expenses.
Current work practices measure performance on how many kilometres are maintained by road crews each day. The Award will allow the recipient to research ways to modify work practices to a culture of quality over quantity, reducing machinery usage and man hours, and conserving limited natural resources such as quarry materials.
The Award funding allocation is up to $2,500. Awards granted will reflect the quantity and quality of applications within the award allocation, which are determined by the MWOA Board and approved by Earthco Projects. Applications for the Award are to be addressed to the MWOA attention Stephen M Robertson.
Announcement of successful applicants will be made at the 24th National Works & Engineering Conference to be held on 21st – 22nd September 2017.
