Our research in pavement engineering has expanded since its inception in 1954 to embrace all pavement materials, design, evaluation and management.

From beginnings in road asphalt, research now extends to:

  • Dock, airport and rail pavements
  • Wider transportation infrastructure
  • Asset management and maintenance
  • Risk analysis and reduction in transportation systems
  • Congestion avoidance
