Last year AUSTROADS released the 2012 version of its “Guide to Pavement Technology, Part 2: Pavement Structural Design” which contained many editorial and technical changes as well as a number of changes to the appendices.
The updating of this important document provided a challenge for CPEE on two fronts. Firstly, the Austroads Guides are used as a significant reference text in a number of the specialised CPEE Distance Learning Units that from part of its Post Graduate programs and impact on those studying the popular CPEE Graduate Certificate and Masters of Technology qualifications. The technical unit notes therefore had to undergo a revision to ensure that the learning material was up to date with the latest information coming out of Austroads.
