SLURRY SEALS WITH CALCINED-BAUXITE AGGREGATE

DETAILS ARE REPORTED OF TRIAL SECTIONS OF SLURRY SEALS CONTAINING CALCINED-BAUXITE AGGREGATE LAID ON TRUNK ROAD AL AT GONERBY, GRANTHAM, LINCOLNSHIRE, IN AUGUST 1968 WITH THE OBJECT OF ASCERTAINING WHETHER A MATERIAL OF THIS TYPE COULD PROVIDE AND MAINTAIN HIGH VALUES OF RESISTANCE TO SKIDDING ON A SITE SUBJECT TO BRAKING AND TURNING TRAFFIC. IT IS CONCLUDED THAT THE PROCESS OFFERS A RAPID METHOD OF RESTORING RESISTANCE TO SKIDDING ON SITES CARRYING MAINLY PASSENGER CAR TRAFFIC BRAKING FROM HIGH SPEEDS. UNDER THESE CONDITIONS, A LIFE OF AT LEAST THREE YEARS IS CONSIDERED POSSIBLE. THE COST OF SUCH TREATMENT WOULD BE APPROXIMATELY ONE-SIXTH OF THAT OF A BAUXITE/RESIN DRESSING.
