17th AAPA International Flexible Pavements Conference

Roads of the Future – Embracing Disruption

13-16 August 2017
The AAPA International Flexible Pavements Conference is one of the largest Roads Conference Australia has ever seen with a jam packed technical program, family event and more!

It all began on Sunday 13th August with a FREE Plant and Equipment exhibition showcasing the best in the industry from Australia and around the world.

The event was open to the public and showcases the road construction industry, its employment, training opportunities and career pathways, along with providing an opportunity for the public to engage with the industry.

WIRTGEN AUSTRALIA displayed 2 machines, a VÖGELE SUPER 1703-3 fitted with RoadScan and a soon to be delivered HAMM HD+70VV for Tier 1 road services provider Downer, who have renewed their 101 unit compaction fleet by changing to HAMM. With a delegation of 11 Product Support Advisors there was always an expert on hand to answer the many questions that the public had for them.

There was a lot of interest in the displayed units but also in BENNINGHOVEN’s mobile and modular plant offerings, with the displayed VÖGELE SUPER 1703-3 sold soon after the exhibition closed.

WIRTGEN AUSTRALIA ran a V8 Supercar simulator competition over the course of the Expo, with the victor winning the all expenses paid trip to Road Technical Days in Ludwigshafen in April 2018.

George Leidig, General Manager Surfacing Operations & Plant from Downer New Zealand‎ was the winner of this much sort after prize and will be accompanying the WIRTGEN AUSTRALIA Road Technology team to Germany.
