Pavement Design & Assessment

Tonkin specialises in efficient and cost-effective transport solutions including pavement design and management. Our multidisciplinary team has a strong record of delivering these projects in a cost-effective and timely manner.

Our expertise takes in the design of pavements for roadways with varying levels of traffic and the interaction of different pathways. We provide concept and detailed design services for main carriageway alignments including grade separation and major signalised intersections.

Tonkin also develops solutions to allow local road access during construction and for the finished roadway. We provide engineering services for specialist pavement applications such as airfields and flexible/rigid pavements for industrial facilities.
