Crushing sustainability

Recycled material used on recently completed projects is leading the way.

Published: 25 June 2021, Updated: 28 June 2021

A new report by the Waste Authority shows recycled material trialled on a number of projects (including Kwinana Freeway Northbound Widening and Murdoch Drive Connection) have been a major success! Crushed recycled concrete from the Subiaco Oval demolition and other sources has proven to have several economic and environmental benefits.

Following the success, the Roads to Reuse program will be expanded to include material from Princess Margaret Hospital at Leach Highway and Welshpool Road Interchange and Tonkin Highway Corridor projects.
