Global Road Technology is an international company with a wealth of expertise in the creation and maintenance of better urban, rural and industrial roads. GRT technology solves road stabilisation and dust control problems, and other operating challenges, with the optimal combination of proven products and total turn-key solutions.
The company works on all types of roads from major highways and freeways to haulage, industrial and rural roads, plus tarmacs, hardstand areas and water repellent pavements. We provide overall soil and ground stabilisation to all surfaces. Our technology can be applied into clay, silt, sand and gravel materials. Our staffing capabilities consist of expert surveyors, geologists, civil engineers and industry consultants to ensure we always have the right qualified onsite technicians and staff to assist with any project.
It’s our goal to keep industries moving, create better roads for rural communities, and safer road infrastructure in low to middle income countries. Unstable and unsealed roads can cause major problems in the mining industry but GRT technology can keep mine haulage roads open 24 hours a day to maximise productivity.
In many countries, unsatisfactory roads are contributors to poor social and economic development and are unsafe for the whole community. GRT is committed to the United Nation’s initiative of “A Decade of Action” which aims to reduce road deaths by 50% in 2020. Presently, road traffic fatalities take 1.3 million lives per year and this is expected to increase to 1.9 million by 2020 unless urgent action is taken.
The World Health Organisation predicts road crashes will be the leading cause of premature death and disability for children aged 5 and above in low and middle income nations. Each year, 260,000 children die on the road and another one million are seriously injured, often permanently disabled. This hidden road epidemic is a crisis for public health and governments globally. GRT acknowledges the road injury crisis as a major humanitarian catastrophe and pledges to continue to support the UN’s worthy international cause.
