PAVING OF PUBLIC ROADS IN FINLAND

PAVING OF HIGHWAYS WAS STARTED ON A LARGER SCALE AT THE BEGINNING OF THE 1960S. IN 1964 THE USE OF OIL GRAVEL DECREASED, AND THE LENGTH OF ASPHALT CONCRETE PAVEMENTS WAS AT THE SHORTEST IN THE DECADE. THE USE OF BITUMINOUS GRAVEL AND CUT-BACK ASPHALTIC BITUMEN, HOWEVER, INCREASED. THERE HAVE BEEN NO ESSENTIAL CHANGES CONCERNING THE ACTUAL ASPHALT PAVEMENTS, ALTHOUGH OVER 100 TEST ROAD SECTIONS HAVE BEEN CONSTRUCTED FOR ANALYSIS OF DIFFERENT BINDER MATERIALS, ADHESIVE AGENTS, WORKING METHODS, AND THE ECONOMY OF PAVING. THE LENGTH OF PAVED PUBLIC ROADS IN 1964 WAS 1,701 KM, WHICH CAN BE DIVIDED BY PAVEMENT TYPE AS FOLLOWS' ASPHALT CONCRETE 170, BITUMINOUS GRAVEL 329, CUT-BACK ASPHALTIC BITUMEN 169, AND OIL GRAVEL 1,033 KM, OF WHICH 712 KM ARE OLD ROADS /RRL/
