Pavement solutions for the urban environment

Mouchel Parkman in partnership with Birse Civils Ltd were appointed in2004 by a UK Metropolitan Borough Council to undertake a works rehabilitation programme, the aims of which were to raise the profile of the borough by investing UK Government Prudential funding to the value of £5M across the road network. Pavement condition surveys and additional site investigations were carried out and innovative pavement designs were explored, including the retention of the existing pavement layers and their residual strength. The rehabilitation options considered include inlay using flexible construction in order to maintain kerb levels, or inlay using flexible construction plus raising kerbs to enable 40mm or 60mm resurfacing of the footways. Recycling of existing materials is discussed. For the covering abstract see ITRD E145817
