Project Description

Pavement has failed due to subgrade issues and substandard pavement construction causing the road to become unsafe to road users. There are also natural springs contributing to the pavement failure that need to be addressed.

It is proposed to rehabilitate the section of road using a lime and cement treatment and mixing it with the existing pavement. Then bridge the stabilized pavement with an 200 millimetres heavy duty asphalt overlay. Aggregate drains will also be installed to pick up the sub surface water.
