THE CONSTRUCTION OF AN EXPERIMENTAL ROAD WITH A NO-FINES CONCRETE SURFACING IN NOTTINGHAMSHIRE' INTERIM REPORT GIVING THE PERFORMANCE AFTER SIX MONTHS TRAFFIC

NO-FINES CONCRETE WAS USED AS A ROAD SURFACING ON A MINOR ROAD BUILT IN NOTTINGHAMSHIRE IN JULY 1965. THE PURPOSES OF THIS EXPERIMENT WERE TO INVESTIGATE THE PRACTICAL DIFFICULTIES OF CONSTRUCTION, TO DETERMINE THE DURABILITY OF THE SURFACE UNDER TRAFFIC, AND TO OBSERVE THE DRAINAGE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE NO-FINES CONCRETE AND ITS RESISTANCE TO FROST DAMAGE OVER A PERIOD OF YEARS. IT WAS CONCLUDED THAT ROADS SURFACED WITH NO-FINES CONCRETE COULD BE BUILT SATISFACTORILY. ALTHOUGH THE ROAD HAD GIVEN GOOD PERFORMANCE UNDER TRAFFIC FOR A PERIOD OF SIX MONTHS IT WAS TOO EARLY TO ESTIMATE THE DURABILITY OF THE SURFACE.
