Unsealed roads often make up over 50% of a LGA road network. With the financial restraints, increased traffic volumes and weights, local government agencies often have difficultly satisfying community expectations.
AustStab has researched the use of stabilisation in unsealed roads.
The main objectives were to:
- develop a design and construction procedure for unsealed roads;
- reduce dust;
- produce a safer pavement in wet conditions;
- reduce maintenance costs; and
- produce a high strength pavement.
