CONSTRUCTION AND MAINTENANCE WITH ASPHALT IN A LARGE CITY

Hot mixed asphalt practice for road and footpath construction and maintenance presents a challenge to local government, and particularly to municipal engineers in urban municipalities. Its use is essential if the limited finances of councils are to be spent in preserving these assets, and thus ensuring that they are maintained satisfactorily at the lowest overall cost. This has been demonstrated by the works of the Melbourne City Council in its experience with the use of hot asphalt for normal and special applications. Its extended use is necessary to provide an acceptable standard of safety and be environmentally acceptable particularly in heavily trafficked urban areas. /TRRL/
