Low Traffic Crumb Rubber Road Fund
Tyre Stewardship Australia (TSA) is inviting Local Governments to submit an expression of interest to access funding for projects using crumb rubber asphalt on roads with low traffic volumes.
As a means of encouraging the use of crumb rubber asphalt for low traffic roads around Australia, the TSA has released the Low Traffic Crumb Rubber Road Fund.
The TSA will provide financial support for additional costs (relative to a conventional road) associated with the installation of crumb rubber asphalt for new, upgrade or maintenance of low traffic roads. TSA has indicated they will provide funding up to approximately $75,000 per application.

Applications are due by Wednesday, 30 September. Funding details and application forms are available here.
