Bitumen Degradation and Preservation

Toowoomba Regional Group is holding an industry presentation covering the process of bitumen degradation over the life of the road and cover treatments to limit this effect and extend the life of the bitumen surface until more major reconstruction work is required.

This builds on the regions focus on sustainability being undertaken and promoted by industry.
