Global Road Technology announced it is paving the way for safer roads throughout Australia, and internationally, with current projects stretching from North Queensland to Western Australia. The internationally operating company creates and maintains urban, rural and industrial roads. GRT says its technology solves road stabilization and dust control problems, and other operating challenges, with the optimal combination of proven products and total turnkey solutions.
Currently, the company is working on all types of roads from major highways and freeways to haulage, industrial and rural roads, plus tarmacs, hardstand areas and water-repellent pavements in the mining, farming and new infrastructure industries. GRT says its products can provide overall soil and ground stabilization to all surfaces with the technology applicable for clay, silt, sand and gravel materials.
GRT says it also is committed to helping rural and remote communities globally as a supporter of the United Nations Decade for Change Action. The company also congratulates the Australian Federal Government with their recent pledge of $6.2 million to the World Bank’s Global Road Safety Facility.
“GRT recognizes the road injury crisis as a major humanitarian catastrophe and pledges to continue to support the United Nations’ worthy cause,” says Troy Adams, GRT managing director. “It’s great news to hear Australia, as a whole, is getting behind this initiative too and was one of the co-sponsors of the resolution for the Decade of Action for Road Safety by the United Nations General Assembly in 2010.”
Adams says the time it takes to build a GRT road is less than a conventional road, saving resources, materials, money and water. Each of the GRT products is able to be applied quickly with a skilled crew able to lay one kilometer a day, leading to the rollout times from planning to the finished product only a matter of a few days.
“Global Road Technology is innovative road stabilizing technology that is significantly cheaper, greener and longer-lasting than conventional road-building methods,” he says. “The dust from unsealed or unstable road can cause major problems with haul trucks driving over it 24 hours a day.”
