Concrete Carriageway Rehabilitation
It used to be common practice to overlay concrete estate roads with Microasphalt and other bituminous surfacing products.
Years later, this solution has left authorities with two problems:
- Firstly, the aesthetics of the now, patchy finish with open joints and the regular occurrence of worn-off areas of blacktop exposing concrete patches.
- Secondly, the high cost of the ongoing maintenance liability in keeping the highway free of potholes, trip hazards and maintaining a safe running surface in a residential environment.
The solution used in the seaside town of Bexhill in East Sussex is to expose the original concrete carriageway by planing off the layers of surfacing and, using a combination of specialist products, repairing the damaged surface.
