Investigation of asphalt pavement temperatures in WA

Western Australia is a vast state with a varied climate. This project attempts to expand our thinking towards actual pavement temperatures when catering for heat. Getting a better picture of what kind of temperatures pavements experience versus what they have been designed to handle could help us design more effectively. One possibility is that the thickness of current pavements may not be required, and thinner more cost effective designs might suffice. Our instruments are busy collecting information so watch this space for the results.
