The gap is growing exponentially

Every year the gap between those authorities that have embraced sustainable technology, and those that have not, is growing exponentially. Smart developments cost substantially less to maintain, but as you can see, the difference is not only financial.

Smart developments outperform and outlast traditional developments

An item of infrastructure is unlikely to last 100 years without requiring replacement.

By making a on-off investment of a mere $25.00, every time (over the life of a development) an item  requires removal, replacement, updating or relocation, instead of costing $300, the only cost is a few seconds labour. View video

For  authorities replacing hundreds of items every week this represents hundreds of thousands annually (x 100 years this represents an exhorbitant amount of tax payers money simply ending up as landfill)


The savings and benefits do not stop there!

Given the enormous amount of variables involved, its not surprising 90% of projects go over budget. A simple job can easily go over budget ( if the crew hits underground obstacles, bad traffic or bad weather conditions,  a worker is injured working in traffic, or worse still you damage underground cables or hit a gas line) destroying any well planned budget. But the cost is not only financial …



The cost is not only financial …

Authorities digging up and replacing the same items over and over again day after day, year after year, are wasting precious resources.

With road authorities consuming tonnes of carbon intensive concrete and paving supplies every single day, that ultimately end up as landfill, the impact upon our environment is a major problem for present generations, and even more so for future generations for whom these issues will be of even greater significance.

Focusing on the problem now will help avoid costly future investments

All State and Local Government Road authorities are aware a resilience based approach to infrastructure is vital so they better adapt to increasing populations and workloads. “A resilience based approach to infrastructure is vital so we can better adapt to change and reduce our exposure to risk. Decisions taken today, particularly those related to the redesign and retrofitting of existing infrastructure, will affect how well our network is able to adapt to change into the future. Focusing on the problem now will help avoid costly future investments and disruptions to operations.” Main Roads WA
