Case study: On the Supercars fast track

We supplied the bitumen used at the Phillip Island and Winton racetracks. The key to the success of the final paved surfaces was planning. Our bitumen team worked closely with the asphalt contractors on each project to ensure we met key deliverables. These included large volumes of product delivered on grade, on time and on temperature, and over relatively short time frames.
