Paving Project Sallisaw, OK

Scheme: Queen Adelaide Way, Ely
Authority: Cambridge County Council
Client: Skanska
Date: October 2014
Area: 3400 m2 In-Situ
Process: 200mm over Triax grid Surface: 40mm Asphalt over 60mm Binder Carbon Saving: 52 tonnes

The project ultimately delivered 31,500m2 of recycled reconstruction over four weekends and four night shifts on the Mondays that followed’

The recently completed £3.4m scheme on the A1066 near Thetford saw a section of road surface replaced between Thetford and Diss. Routine monitoring showed
a rapid deterioration of the surface following the hot summers of 2018 and 2019 which left the busy route very uneven in places.

The road runs through rural land and forest with long stretches of straight single lane carriageway with speed limits set at 60mph.

SPL were brought in by contractors Tarmac to deliver a recycling treatment that was identified as suitable on this route.

As part of the design assessment, extensive investigation and testing was undertaken by Norfolk Partnership Laboratory (NPL) –part of the Norse Group – on behalf of Norfolk County Council.

A 4.7Km section was identified for a recycling treatment, NPL removed bound construction materials with 350mm diamond tipped core barrels. NPL then measured ‘stiffness modulus’ (Sm) of the material directly beneath the core before using hand tools to remove bulk samples of unbound sub-base and the sub grade
where possible.

“We have all the tools to address one of the fastest growing climate issues that we face: wildfires. Wildland fires have two detrimental effects to climate: they take out trees that would otherwise absorb carbon dioxide and pollute the air from resulting smoke. I thought about all the things that we do for our 21st Century Security concept, how we network existing platforms and products and systems together to accomplish a mission. The mission here is how can we help predict, detect and suppress wildfires much better than we ever could before with what we have
today?”
