As part of the NDRRA flood repair works, the RPQ Group were contracted for the rehabilitation and reconstruction of the Warrego highway pavements at 7 separate sites between Marburg and Gatton. Pavement design consisted of DG20HM at varying thickness, followed by DG14HS binder layer & DG14HS wearing course, including SAMI seals, seals and primes where required. Approximately 120,000 tonnes of AC pavement and 265,000 m2 of primes and seals laid.  Contra-flow conditions on several sections of the project enabled greater productivity.  Trico Asphalt were able to manufacture a plant-mixed foamed bitumen base material  incorporating virgin and recycled materials. This was manufactured and transported to site by RPQ for the Minden Range works.
