Global Road Technology instant highway facility

Global Road Technology (GRT) opened a new manufacturing and services facility (16,000-sqm) on the Warrego Highway. This move provides a boost to the region’s manufacturing industry and employment. Road safety improvement is also key.

GRT director Ben Skinner said, “The company was working on the Southern Downs for Australia’s largest Liquefied Natural Gas company and would expand north to minimize the mining boom’s environmental impact on roads as well as increase road safety.”

“GRT products use in-situ material to mitigate dust and soil stabilisation issues by up to 95 percent on rural roads whilst reducing traffic volumes, water usage, fuel usage and landowner complaints,” Mr Skinner said.

He added, “These measures increase safety and environmental sustainability on rural and regional roads.”

Western Downs Mayor Ray Brown said, “Roads in the region were simply unable to cope. Traffic on the Warrego Highway alone had increased by around 18,000 vehicles.”

Mr Skinner said, “The GRT technology and the company’s Darling Downs base would contribute to a safer, more sustainable and environmentally friendly road solution for the region.”
