Project Description

Failed pavement at this location due to seepage of water across this section of the road. Suitable subgrade (natural soil beneath the road) treatment such as drainage blanket (rubble layer together with geofabrics at the bottom of the pavement) is proposed to overcome this issue.

Remove soft area of subgrade material, lay rubble layer, lay new gravel and two coats of bitumen sealing.
