Quarry and Materials Registration
Materials Registration Process
The Department of State Growth has adopted the Victorian VicRoads registration process for quarries supplying materials to be used on Tasmanian Road and Bridge construction contracts.
All materials supplied for use in the construction of roads and bridges must be sourced from a quarry accredited by VicRoads and the relevant material mix design registered with the Department of State Growth including:
- Crushed Rock Mix Designs
- Bituminous Mix Designs, and
- Concrete Mix Designs
The Department of State Growth Materials Registration process commences with the quarry accreditation process administered by VicRoads (see figure 1) with the subsequent assessment and approval of crushed rock, bituminous and concrete mix designs to be undertaken by VicRoads for the Department.
