The City of the Gold Coast required resurfacing of a roundabout in an increasingly busy built up residential area. The roundabout services homes, schools, a hospital, and major local shopping centres. The heavy vehicular traffic included several bus routes and commercial trucking.

The project brief was to replace the existing asphalt surface with asphalt that would wear well, decrease skidding and improve safety as the roundabout was also prone to accidents.

The existing pavement was removed and replaced -created using Entyr’s recovered carbon black (eCB) in the mix and tyre-derived hydrocarbon (eTDFO) in processing.

Outcomes included improved safety, improved strength, increased colour duration, improved noise reduction, improved skid, and rutting resistance to this heavily used roundabout in Robina, Gold Coast.

AfPA and IPWEAQ both recognised the safety and sustainability of the work completed on this project with prestigious individual industry awards to the asphalt company, Austek Road Services.
