Building on the successful Paving the Way (Glass) procurement, the next phase seeks to establish the true net present value of asphalt with crumb rubber, including improved performance, extended asset life, increased material efficiency, and carbon emissions reduction, while driving a local end market for end-of-life car and truck tyres.

Tyre Stewardship Australia (TSA) has committed to the project, which will be the largest local government-led trial of its kind in Australia. Project deliverables include:

·         Technical review of information provided by suppliers on available crumb rubber asphalt product;

·         Definition of trial mixes and trial framework using crumb rubber derived from both truck tyres and, for the first time, passenger car tyres;

·         Monitoring and reporting of the performance of trial mixes.
