Through trials of its crumb rubber binder across Australia, Road Maintenance aims to improve the uptake of the sustainable approach now and well into the future.Since the establishment of tyre-derived crumb rubber as a viable sustainable and performance-based material for use in road construction and maintenance, the scope for its use across Australia has gradually increased.

For nearly two-and-a-half years, crumb rubber binder from Victoria-based firm Road Maintenance has been used in a number of trials around Australia.The first such instance was a trial with the City of Casey in Victoria near the end of 2017, where 8500 tonnes of crumb rubber asphalt, incorporating the binder, was used across a variety of road surfaces.

Similar trials of Road Maintenances’ binder was also used in crumb rubber asphalt trials for Cardinia Shire Council in Victoria and City of Mitcham in South Australia, which owner Max Fitzgerald says have been great examples of the environmentally conscious and sustainable practice in action in various applications.
