Evaluation of pilot project
In December 2012, a road was constructed in the Amazon region using RoadCem. The construction consists of a RoadCem-stabilised layer of clay upon which an asphalt cover layer was applied over 1 year later.
Over the first two years, the stabilisation was subjected to extremely heavy usage (axle loads of up to 200kN). In addition to this, the maximum load of the clay subsoil is relatively low (15MPa) and groundwater levels are relatively high due to the heavy rainfall.
Despite this, by September 2014, no structural damage was observed and the construction fully satisfied all of the clients' expectations.
