SYMPOSIUM EUROBITUME, LONDRES, 14-15 NOVEMBRE 1978 - FACTEURS ECONOMIQUES

THE FIRST PART OF THE PAPER ANALYZES THE EVOLUTION IN THE QUANTITY OF BITUMEN CONSUMED IN FRANCE DURING THE LAST FEW YEARS FOR DIFFERENT USAGES, IN PARTICULAR ROAD CONSTRUCTION. THE DISTRIBUTION BETWEEN COATING BITUMEN AND BITUMEN FOR THE PREPARATION OF BINDERS FOR IMPREGNATION AND SURFACE DRESSINGS IS EXAMINED. THE QUANTITY OF MIXTURES PRODUCED BY MOBILE PLANTS AND FIXED PLANTS IS CONSIDERED TOGETHER WITH THE DISTRIBUTION OF THE MIXTURES BETWEEN: NEW CONSTRUCTION, STRENGTHENING AND MAINTENANCE OPERATIONS. PART TWO OF THE REPORT PRESENTS AN ANALYSIS OF THE EVOLUTION IN THE COST OF BINDERS FOR COATINGS AND SURFACE DRESSINGS COMPARED TO THAT OF OTHER MATERIALS USED IN ROAD CONSTRUCTION. THIS EVOLUTION IS COMPARED TO THAT OF NATIONAL INDICES RELATING TO ROAD CONSTRUCTION COSTS. MENTION IS MADE OF THE CURRENT POLICY AS REGARDS THE MANUFACTURE OF BITUMINOUS MIXTURES AND OF THE INFLUENCE OF THE SIZE OF CONSTRUCTION SITES ON MANUFACTURING COSTS. COMMENTS ARE MADE ON THE COST OF SUPPLYING AND LAYING SURFACE DRESSINGS ACCORDING TO THE CATEGORY OF ROAD ON WHICH THEY ARE USED. SPECIAL MENTION IS MADE OF THE CASE OF HIGHLY-TRAFFICKED ROADS. SEE ALSO IRRD ABSTRACT NO 109280.
