Overview

High quality pavements, along with the correct selection of pavement surfacing materials are critical to the safety, longevity and condition of New Zealand roads.

This one day course will outline and identify the multiple types of surfacing currently in use, the variety of materials used in maintaining these pavements, as well as design, equipment use and surfacing type selection.

Asphalt and Chipseal practices will be covered at length including cutting and preparation, along with procedures for patching both of these surfacing types.

Current Health and Safety practices will also be covered in depth relating to these specific workplace environments.
