Project Description

The bitumen seal width at 5.5m is less than the adopted seal width for this hierarchy of road (8m adopted) and pavement depth is insufficient for heavy traffic loading and B-doubles heavy vehicles. This leads to pavement deformation and edge break causing poor ride quality and potential road safety issues; particularly on bends. Council incurs high recurrent maintenance costs in grading unsealed shoulders, repairing sealed edge break and patching the deformed pavement.

Shoulder Widening to bring the road up to the adopted route length of 6km repair, Standard consisting of a 10mm formation and 8m seal width. Reconstruction of the existing pavement using in-Situ stabilisation to cater for current and future vehicle loading.
