This week on highways voices, we focus on specialist testing of roads, runways and racetracks
Dr David Woodward is Reader in Infrastructure Engineering at Ulster University and Senior Scientific Officer at R3, an independent testing consultancy service for Roads, Runways and Racetracks. The company was established to bring years of academic research and knowledge from the highways laboratory at Ulster University to the wider industry and Dr David has developed extensive knowledge of the quarrying and asphalt industries and their products.
In his chat with Adrian Tatum he talks about a better understanding of road surfaces, tyres and vehicles, putting the technology together to improve efficiency, and how you might well have driven on some Yellow Pages at some point.
You’ll also hear the latest news from the Highways News website and from our podcast partners, and why CAV Forth wins Adrian’s Accolade this week
