A technique to remedy reflective cracking in asphalt laid on new or old concrete bases and carriageways has been developed. Cracks and joints can be treated, prior to laying asphalt, using an alkali resisting glass-fibre reinforced cement mix which is laid 12 mm thick. The system is said to make a possible reduction in thickness of asphalt resufacing from 130 mm to 40 mm. Testing and development of the system has been carried out for the past three years on three trunk and principal road sites. The work will be evaluated after a further two years of working experience of GRC (glass-fibre reinforced cement) membranes.
