The Australian Government is planning on investing more than $100 billion over the next 10 years from 2019-20 in transport infrastructure across Australia, which also includes $23 billion for new projects and initiatives through the 2019-20 budget.

The road infrastructure projects will help to reduce congestion, better connect our regions, improve safety on our roads and meet our national freight challenge (as per Building Our Future: Delivering the Right Infrastructure for a Growing Nation, April 2019 https://investment. infrastructure.gov.au/files/budget-2019-20/ Building-Our-Future-Delivering-the-Right-Infrastructure-for-a-Growing-Nation-2019.pdf).

Some of the key road infrastructure projects planned include the M1 Motorway Extension to Raymond Tce (NSW), Newell Hwy (NSW), Western Hwy (VIC), Wellington Rd Duplication (VIC), Gateway Motorway – Bracken Ridge to Pine River (QLD), M1 Pacific Motorway Upgrade Program (QLD), Cairns Ring Road (QLD), Albany Ring Road (WA), Fremantle Traffic Bridge (WA) and the North-South Corridor (WA).

These projects will require not only skilled labour but various types and sized machinery such as scrapers, dozers, excavators and skid steers.

Steel tracked machines from 10 to 30 tonne, which are utilised extensively in road work applications, operate best when fitted with durable rubber pads to avoid causing significant damage to the road surface and surrounding areas as a result of the steel tracks. This is when DEKK Rubber Tracks.

Pads and their extensive range of quality pads are an ideal solution.

DEKK Bolt-On Rubber Pads can be quickly and easily fitted to the existing steel grouser plates on the machine and range in size from 250mm up to 800mm. The 500mm bolt-on pad is hugely popular with machine operators and is manufactured and designed using a heavy-duty, natural synthetic fiber virgin rubber compound. This rubber compound adds greater strength and wears resistance, extending the life of the pad and minimizing vibration and noise for the machine operator.

In addition, a 4mm steel core molded within the pad helps to minimise pad flex and delamination, further improving and extending the operating life of the pad. Include DEKK’s 12-month full replacement warranty and money-back guarantee and you’ve got yourself a quality rubber pad for your machine.
