Stabilisation of Road Pavements - Fundamentals

Overview

Stabilisation can provide major benefits for roading projects of all sizes, and significantly offer acceptable cost effective alternatives to the use of premium sources of aggregates.  With the advent of new TNZ performance specifications (B/3 and M/22), there is the opportunity to use alternative materials in conjunction with stabilisation techniques, to meet strength and durability requirements for pavements.  This workshop provides an overview of the main issues involved with the design and construction of sealed and unsealed pavements using stabilisation.
