About the Transportation Geotechnique Committee
The Transportation Geotechnique Committee (TGC) was given status as a specialty committee under the Soil Mechanics and Foundations Division in September 2005. The TGC's interest covers the broad areas of transportation-related geotechnique, including:

• Geotechnical design, construction and maintenance of transportation infrastructures
• Earthworks for transportation facilities
• Geomaterials and recycled materials
• Geotechniques for pavements, rail track and airfield
• Geosynthetics and applications
• Sustainability, performance evaluation, and rehabilitation
• Risk management and environmental issues

The TGC works to:

• Organize and coordinate sessions on Tranportation Geotechnique at the annual Canadian Geotechnical Conference, in collaboration with the Technical Divisions of CGS
• Act as a forum for discussion between industry, academics, and students on issues of research, education, and training
• Promote awareness of Transportation Geotechnique within the CGS, the geoscience community, and related fields
• Liaise between CGS and other transportation-related national and international organizations
• Contribute to efforts that may be beneficial to the Transportation Geotechnique community
