THE STATE OF THE ART OF TAR IN SPAIN

EL ALQUITRAN ESPANOL EN LA ACTUALIDAD

The author reviews the uses of tar in road construction in spain over the past few years. Details are given of the experimental section on National Road 2 between Madrid and Barcelona, and of the experimental sections on the Barajas Airport. These experiments led to the execution of some works in the following airports: Lanzarote Island, Fuerteventura Island, Cisneros Villa (Sahara), Jerez de la Frontera and on the apron for jumbo jets on Barajas Airport. In future, tar mixtures or tar-vinyl mixtures will be used to surface aprons and runways; but for road surfacings, the use of tar does not appear to be very satisfactory. /TRRL/
