Annapolis, MD – During the 54th Annual Convention of the International Slurry Surfacing Association awarded the 2016 Excellence in Pavement Preservation – International to Mahbub Hossain, Coordinator Asset Services for the Campbelltown City Council in New South Wales, Australia, during their Recognition Breakfast held on February 25, 2016 at the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort & Spa in Bonita Springs, Florida, for his outstanding contribution to the pavement preservation industry.
In announcing Mr. Hossain as the winner, the CEO of the Institute of Public Works Engineering (IPWEA), John Roydhouse, said that the award was an acknowledgment of the breadth of treatments being used strategically by Campbelltown City Council to provide value and positive economic outcomes, while still achieving sustainable outcomes and high quality maintenance of the area’s road pavement network.
The International Slurry Surfacing Association (ISSA) is the leading authority in emulsion surfacing technology and promotes the highest standards of ethics and quality while providing its members with information, technical assistance and ongoing opportunities for networking and professional development.
The President’s Award is presented to an Owner/Agency or Engineering Firm responsible for specifying and managing a pavement preservation program utilising the applications represented by ISSA (slurry surfacing, micro surfacing, chip sealing, cape sealing, crack treating, and other asphalt emulsion-based surface treatments).
In recognition of the Road Management Strategies that Campbelltown City Council have employed over many years, Mahbub Hossain was nominated for the 2016 inaugural Presidents Award for Excellence in Pavement Preservation.
This nomination was largely based upon the presentation provided at the IPWEA NSW State Conference in Terrigal last October which showcased the breadth of treatments being used strategically to provide value and economic outcomes for council, whilst still achieving sustainable outcomes and high quality maintenance of their road pavement network.
“The work Mahbub and Campbelltown are doing coupled with the results achieved really showcase the strategic value and importance that can be gained from employing the philosophies of Pavement Preservation and the ISSA,” said ISSA Executive Director Michael Krissoff.
