Research Report 002 Communicating about use of road aggregates

Published: | Category: Activity management , Research programme , Research & reports | Audience: General

A limited survey of roading practitioners was carried out to determine their opinion and needs with respect to communicating the findings of research about the properties of unbound aggregates.

This survey was then used as a basis for the formulation of a strategy. It was found that the needs of the different groups within the road construction industry varied. Methods of communication have to be tailored to suit each group.

The strategy comprises:

  • Preparation of text to identify and describe the important aspects of pavement construction.
  • Commission of video to record the requirements for a stable pavement, production of suitable aggregates, correct methods of construction, and criteria that control performance of a pavement.
  • Fostering lectures, seminars, discussion groups, workshops and in-house training.
  • Provide support staff, course material and videos as appropriate.
