Austroads’ local roads webinars

Austroads invites councils to register and join two free webinars on local roads.

On Monday 17 February, 1-2pm AEDT, the topic is the lifecycle management of Sealed and Unsealed Local Roads.

“It will highlight the Austroads Guides and the AUS-SPEC national local government specification system which assist local government practitioners to design, construct and maintain sealed and unsealed roads,” Austroads said.

The webinar from 1pm-2:15pm AEDT on Thursday 27 February covers Local Government Road Safety Management Guidance.

Paul Durdin, who wrote Austroads’ Local Government Road Safety Management Guidance that ALGA reported on last month, will lead the webinar and live Q&A.

He will cover topics including road safety management systems in Australia and New Zealand, principles and processes for developing a management framework, and the importance of monitoring and evaluation.
