EXPERIMENTAL SOIL CEMENT PAVEMENT AT REREWHAKAAITU DEVIATION. STATE HIGHWAY NO. 38

The comprehensive pre- and post-construction testing of the experimental pavement are briefly summarised. The predicted and actual pavement behavior are compared after 2 years under heavy logging traffic. Results so far indicate that the 6 in. high strength and 10 in. medium strength cement-treated pumice pavements are equivalent to good quality standard aggregate basecourse, but that the low strength and 6 in. medium strength combinations are not. A standard untreated greywacke basecourse pavement and a softer untreated rhyolite pavement are compared. As yet there are not surface indications of a difference in performance. /TRRL/
