Reducing congestion on the road network: Part 3, Early strength gain (rapid cure) concrete for reinstatements

This report documents a cost benefit analysis and laboratory tests to assess the utilization of rapid-cure concrete to reduce the duration of road construction projects. Thirteen mixtures including pavement quality concrete (PQC), cement bound granular material (CBGM) and foamed concrete for reinstatements (FCR) were tested in the Transport Research Laboratory for compressive strength. Samples from sites where reinstatement was occurring were also tested. A description of each site is included along with the strength results.
