ACTIONS AND IMPLEMENTATION
The Original design called for a robust make up to allow for all vehicular traffic including HGV tanker access to Asset. The original concept design called for capping layer, granular fill , sub base and traditional asphalt surface.
Together with the reconfiguration of the proposed layout to incorporate existing consolidated sub strata, we utilised our sustainable road surfacing product Smart Surface to enhance the majority of the access road to create a new route off the A82. This project required 15 t of our alternative and eco-friendly product which helped our client save over 50% on carbon emissions and significant costs. This road surfacing solution has provided a durable and aesthetically pleasing finished surface which has an expected life span that meets or exceeds the original design option.
Smart Surface allowed this site to keep exportation of materials to the site at a minimum and importation of recycled material was significantly decreased.
