SECTIONS OF ALL-BITUMEN PAVEMENT IN THE LARGEST HIGHWAY IN THE TOWN OF MALMOE

A VSNITT MED BARA ASFALT I OEVERBYGGNADEN PAA MOLMOES STOERSTA TRAFIKLED SOM BYGGS NU

The largest road construction project so far undertaken in Malmo comprises a 1 km section of all-bitumen (hb) pavement. The cost of this construction is approx. 20% less than that of conventional construction, and owing to the fact that the thickness is about 35% of the conventional one, excavation in embankments and thus road width could be reduced. The all-bitumen section comprises lime-stabilised subgrades where the thickness of pavement is 30 cm, and sections with- out lime stabilisation where thickness is 35 cm. Bituminous gravel (bg) on the sections without stabilisation has been laid by a spreader in 5-10 cm courses, while on the stabilised sections the whole thickness has been spread in one course by bulldozer. Although the surface is somewhat uneven as a result, better compaction is possible due to slower cooling of the thick layer of bituminous gravel. /TRRL/
