Surface Tension: The Conclusions of Two Reports from TRL Are Likely to Have Implications for Bridge Deck Surfacing and Waterproofing Systems in the UK

The author discusses findings by TRL, a research firm, on behalf of the United Kingdom's Highways Agency in regard to UK bridge deck surfacing and waterproofing problems. TRL recommendations include radical changes to current specifications. Surface courses and loading, increased bond strength requirements, and air void content in the asphalt directly overlaying the waterproofing system are all issues included in the article.
