EUPAVE visited by colleagues from AUSTRALIA
On 14th July 2014 an Australian delegation from ASCP - Australian Society for Concrete Pavements - visited Belgium where they were welcomed by EUPAVE managing director Luc Rens.
The visitors were John Figueroa, Technical Director at Aurecon, Neil Webb from Aecom and Timothy Buckingham-Jones from Hyder Consulting Ltd.
They participated in a technical tour, guided by Luc Rens and dr. ir. Anne Beeldens from the Belgian Road Research Centre. Topics of interest were low-noise exposed aggregate concrete, roundabouts and concrete pavements in tunnels.
On 8th October 2014, Mr. Ken Slattery, CEO of CEMENT CONCRETE & AGGREGATES AUSTRALIA visited EUPAVE premises to discuss with Luc Rens the challenges and opportunities for promoting concrete pavements in Europe and Australia. Many similarities exist and lessons can be learnt from each other.
Both encounters have contributed to an enhanced relationship between EUPAVE and its Australian colleagues, creating a win-win situation for all organisations.
