ROAD CONSTRUCTION IN WEATHER-SENSITIVE LOESS DURING THE RECONSTRUCTION OF THE EB51 AT BOCHUM IN THE RUHR /IN GERMAN/

DIFFICULTIES WHICH WERE DURING THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE ROAD DUE TO THE DENSITY OF CONSTRUCTION AND TO GEOLOGICAL CONDITIONS ARE OUTLINED. THE 15M DEEP LAYERS OF LOESS AND LOESS-LOAM SOIL DIRECTLY BENEATH THE SURFACE, WHICH HAD A NATURAL WATER CONTENT OF 23%, REQUIRED EXTREMELY CAREFUL DRAINAGE, THE USE OF LIME FOR STABILIZATION, AND MADE THE CONSTRUCTION OF CUTTINGS AND EMBANKMENTS DIFFICULT. DETAILS ARE GIVEN OF THE INCORPORATION OF THE FROST BLANKET COURSE AND TOTAL COSTS OF CONSTRUCTION. /FG/RRL/
