This Reference Group meeting followed closely on the heels of the AAPA 2011
Study Tour to South Africa and the AAPA 14th International Flexible Pavements
conference held the previous week in Melbourne.

Visiting international speakers from the conference presented updates on the
conference papers and the Queensland study tour visitors presented a quick
overview of the initial tour report.

The afternoon session was split with a TMR Road Surfacings Technology meeting
and the AAPA Q Technical Committee reviewed the field sampling of bituminous
binders.

The presentations were lead by three visiting researchers & academics from the
USA - Texas Transportation Institute, Auburn University and NCAT and linked to
feedback on the AAPA supported research on very long life asphalt pavements
and the performance of highly modified SBS asphalt on the NCAT test track.

The national WMA protocol development status was reported along with the
Strategic Alliance projects on thermal imaging of sprayed seals and the
development of safe sampling procedures for bitumen delivered in the field.
