Road agencies face growing pressure to respond to issues related to climate change, resource shortages, and shifting transport mode preferences. A key part of this response will be to reduce the dependency on fossil fuel based energy (and the associated greenhouse gas emissions) of transport infrastructure. As part of the Sustainable Built Environment National Research Centre the research team from the Curtin University Sustainability Policy Institute is developing a project focused on the strategies and solutions for the future of roads. This project initially had two components and in 2014 a third was added in collaboration with the CRC for Low Carbon Living. The three components are as follows:

  1. Technologies and Processes for the Future of Roads
  2. Sustainability Reporting and the Future of Roads
  3. Low Carbon Tendering informed by Sustainability Performance and Reporting Tools
