SELECTION OF THE BEST SURFACE PROTECTION LAYER TO GO ON TOP OF BITUMINOUS WEARING COURSES

The author briefly considers the need for surface protection courses and describes methods of constructing these courses and their advantages and disadvantages. An evaluation of the courses under present day conditions shows that: 1 - Treatment of a surface with a binder which has maximum adhesion and strength is sufficient for light and average traffic; 2 - Speeds limits for two to three days and laying during warm weather are recommended; 3 - Bituminous slurry may be used for roads carrying light to average traffic; And 4 - binders currently available in the German Democratic Republic are such that traffic should not be allowed on the road immediately after the slurry has been laid. /TRRL/
