Provincial governments

Provincial governments are sometimes faced with high costs for the construction, management and maintenance of secondary roads and road widening projects. The costs for unpaved roads are high as well, and dirt roads often cause a public nuisance. Among other things, due to dust and holes in the road surface. GeoCrete® offers an alternative in these cases. This innovative technique transforms the available soil into a natural paved surface. The new paved surface has a natural look and it does not wash away during heavy rainfall.

Secondary roads and road widening Another smart use of the cement additive GeoCrete® involves widening roads or creating foundations under roads. The soil does not have to be removed and the road is only closed for a very short time. Existing used materials can be included in the process. During road widening projects, a stable retention of the road and a foundation for concrete elements can be created. One example of this is a rumble strip with open grass concrete blocks. The higher elasticity improves the force distribution. This prevents damage under roads, on the sides of roads and in structures.

 

Applications

  • dirt roads and rural roads
  • foundations under asphalt roads
  • widening roads by stabilising the verge
  • roads, cycle paths and maintenance roads around dykes
  • foundations for temporary or permanent buildings (event sites)
  • natural paved surfaces such as roads to wind turbines and plot paths
  • temporary crane positions
  • industrial sites, including optimisation of the structure and subsidence prevention
  • creation of foundation plateaus using the available soil
  • solutions for failure mechanisms on dykes
  • paved surfaces and structures that bear heavy loads, such as container terminals, lorry parks

Advantages

  • faster
  • reduces costs
  • no soil displacement necessary
  • less primary raw materials necessary
  • better force distribution
  • less nuisance and CO2
  • reusable
