  • Smart Motorway Construction with Concrete

    Picture of Smart Motorway Construction with Concrete

    The benefits of concrete motorway pavements have been known for some time and many stretches of concrete motorway have been maintenance free for decades, frequently exceeding their design lives. These technical guidelines explain the benefits of using concrete as part of an integrated design approach, with particular emphasis on the pavement layers, where new design guidance creates the opportunity for maximising whole-life value and minimising ongoing maintenance requirements.

    The guide examines a number of concrete pavement options that, although tested and proven overseas, have yet to gain widespread adoption in the UK despite their whole life cost, noise reduction, long-term performance and minimum maintenance benefits. The options discussed include Continuously Reinforced Concrete Pavements (CRCP), Exposed Aggregate Concrete Surface (EACS) Roller Compacted Concrete (RCC), Groove and Grind and Whitetopping. The guide also forwards a number of applications where concrete roads could provide roads that in the future earn their keep.
