In this issue, the AIA’s ALARM Survey reveals the crumbling road crisis brought about by decades of underfunding; an interview with the president of ADEPT, Steve Kent; how asphalt suppliers, contractors, local authorities and industry bodies continue to search for more efficient and cost-effective ways of working. In addition, there is an interesting mix of articles covering topics ranging from SMAs and an international research study into the long term durability of different PMBs, to airfield resurfacing.

Asphalt Now - Issue 31
The economy, sustainability and learning & development are the three themes in this issue. Stories include a piece about a YouGov survey that revealed the poor condition of local roads is costing businesses £5 billion each year; a roundtable discussion on road funding at a joint meeting of the All Party Parliamentary Groups for Highway Maintenance and Local Government; a sustainability interview and case study; an article about developing knowledge and skills; event reports and an HMEP update.
Asphalt Now - Issue 30
Along with a selection of articles and case studies from our member companies, this issue of Asphalt Now looks at the importance of sharing best practice. Mathew Lugg gives an overview of the Highway Maintenance Efficiency Programme (HMEP) and its first product, the Potholes Review which is supported by the AIA. See page 8. The 17th ALARM Survey was published earlier this year and continues to highlight, the need for longer term planned preventative maintenance: the message is “invest in better maintenance now to save the higher costs of future significant repairs”. Is asset management the answer to convince the pursers? See page 4.
Asphalt Now - Issue 29 - Winter 2012
Alan Mackenzie, the new acting chairman of the AIA, introduces the 29th edition of Asphalt Now with the theme of roads for the future. The issue includes a look at the 2012 Olympic road maintenance legacy, and the asphalt industry’s road ahead in addressing the current skills shortage. Local authorities comment on whether this winter will expose the road maintenance backlog again, and what some are achieving by applying asset management is illustrated by case studies.
