history of roads in australia Road travel plays a dominant role in life in Australia today even though it is continually being augmented by other means of travel and communication.

Approximately 90 per cent of passenger travel and 20 per cent of freight transport is by road. Main Roads are responsible for delivering and management of a safe and efficient main road network in Western Australia.

Representing one of the world's most expansive road networks, we are committed to working cooperatively and productively across all levels of government, to ensure our road network meets the needs of the community, industry and stakeholders.

UNIT - 2 BITUMEN AND TAR: Origin, preparation, properties and chemical constitution of bituminous road binders; requirements. [4 Hours] ***** Introduction Bituminous binders used in pavement construction works include both bitumen and tar.

Both bitumen and tar have similar appearance, black in colour though they have different characteristics.

Bitumen treated with these modifiers is known as modified bitumen. It is based on the performance of experimental roads interpreted in the light of structural theory. The capping layer and sub-base is designed primarily as a construction platform.

Design curves are given for the thickness of bituminous, lean concrete or wet-mix roadbase required to carry the traffic expected to use the road during its design life.
