A big part of Road Science’s work involves collaboration with customers to identify solutions for challenging road surfacing and construction situations.  Contact us to discuss your particular needs.

With so much innovation underway, education is an important part of the new Road Science service.  It’s not just about teaching people how to use these products – we need to take everyone back to the basic science involved. It’s all part of the recipe that will give New Zealand a network of better, more cost-effective roads.
