With the wet winter month's upon us in the Southern States, I remind consultants and practitioners of the benefits of lime subgrade stabilisation to dry out wet grades and provide all weather working platforms. If the lime demand test requirements are achieved a permanent reaction is attained. There are potentially other benefits achieved by lime stabilising subgrades, including increasing the waterproofness of the base and increasing the CBR of the subgrade.

More information is available from AustStab members located throughout Australia.
