Road Construction

Intelligent Road Solutions™ for Road Construction

Roads form a critical part of the infrastructure of any country, city, or  town, and as such the construction of roads is an important part of our growth.

There are a number of critical factors which influence how a road is constructed some of which include:

  • Type and Characteristics of in-situ soil
  • Clay and/or sand content
  • Type, Volume and weight of traffic
  • Availability of Aggregate or cement
  • Design Specification
  • Type of Equipment
  • Budget


EBS soil stabilizer
 
Geogrid technology

 

Our flagship product EBS™  Engineered Base Stabilizer is incorporated into the mix design for the base layer works of a road, and is also applied as a surface seal. Geogrid is a cost effective solution which can be integrated into the road design in order to provide additional strength for sandy sub-grade material. Dynamic Compaction is a construction method which decreases your cut to fill layer works which allows for significant time and cost savings. Every road is different, every solution is specifically tailored in accordance with the clients objectives and specifications.

Soil and Dust solutions provides a consulting service in order to assist our client with road design specifications, soil and materials testing, tenders through to project management and construction. Should you require this service, please contact us to discuss your requirements.

Soil Stabilization

EBS soil stabilizer - Road constructionEBS SOIL STABILIZER allows for a significantly increased tensile strength and load bearing capacity of the in-situ soil is achieved through the incorporation of our soil stabilizer, a technologically advanced co-polymer emulsified base stabilizer.

The incorporation of  EBS stabilizer in the construction methodology of roads will provide a longer lasting base, sub-base, and wearing course, while decreasing rolling resistance and increasing ride performance.

An increase in the elasticity of the surface will also occur which will prohibit the formation of potholes, cracks, and reduce overall maintenance costs of the road, vehicles, and equipment.

The amount of EBS product required is subject to final confirmation of type of soil (moisture level, clay content, sub base, etc.), traffic volume, weight, haulage weight, and required compressive strength of the road design itself, as these factors determine the application rate.

We provide a cost effective solution by cutting material costs and over all initial construction by over 40% when compared to traditional methods. In addition our unique deep compaction methods allow for compaction of in-situ soil over a meter deep thereby not requiring the contruction of individual layers.

EBS Maintenance Requirements

The sub base constructed will be permanent, while the maintenance requirement for the wearing course surface is only 30-50% of the original application rate of the topical surface seal after a 12-24 month period.  The amount required is dependent upon the volume and type of traffic and the overall care taken to keep the wearing course free from fugitive material.

See our detailed Construction Methodology  which was used for the construction of a Mine Haul Road in Northern Cape, South Africa.

Geogrid Technology

GeoGrid technology

Adding Geogrid technology with the use of EBS allows for real solutions for roads with a poor subgrade material.

GeoSolutions a Highly Technologically Advanced Biaxial High Strength Grid for Soil Improvement and Reinforcement

Our Geogrid Solutions involve the amalgamation of high strength junctions and stiff ribs in a biaxial configuration, which provide the ideal automatic retention of loose soil and aggregate into a rigid layer. This property makes the technology perfect for a multitude of commercial, residential, and industrial projects. Geogrid technology and application have become an inseparable part of working platforms, parking areas, railway track beds, roads, airports and airfields, housing developments, warehouses, tunnel lining, steep slopes and asphalt reinforcements, among scores of other infrastructure projects, especially those located in swampy or sandy areas.

Our Geogrid Solutions and applications in road stabilization are yet another way in which Soil Solutions® is leading the way in the implementation of Intelligent Road Solutions™   through the integration of road and soil improvement technologies that solve the developmental challenges we face today.

GeoSolutions are ideal for temporary roads, or Roads in swamp conditions, as well as for sand stabilization.  

GeoSolution technology provides a solution for the most challenging of conditions.


Dynamic Compaction

High Energy In-situ Deep Dynamic Compaction

Introduction of Dynamic Compaction for Increased Strength in Road Layer Works

In-situ deep compaction is not a new technology; deep compaction has been incorporated into road and structural work for centuries. However as our appetite for research and our technology advances so does our ingenuity and ability to design and construct machines that are able to accomplish faster rates of performance at lower costs. Some of the largest challenges in civil earthworks today is the availability and cost of materials, budgetary constraints and completion schedules.

 In addition, the locations of suitable borrow pit material, the related excavation loading, hauling and placement of material all add up to increased construction costs. By incorporating the use of Dynamic Compaction machines into the construction of roads, rails and port facilities allows for a substantial decrease in the cost of the traditional cut to fill layers and can render a savings up to 60% or more of the cost of construction as well as the cost of crushing and screening of selected materials.


The utilization of Dynamic Compaction
in a roadbed significantly increases the strength of the wearing course and base layers of conventional roads, gravel roads and mine haul roads in addition to airport runways and railroad layer works in a shorter period of time.


Surface Sealing

Intelligent Road Solutions™  -Road Surface Sealing

 View Gravel Roads brochure

Sealing a road surface is critical to the life term and sustainability of the road. The traditional methods used for gravel road construction leave the surface un-sealed that allows constant degradation in the form of run off, erosion, corrugation, potholes and significant dust to occur. These roads are extremely demanding in terms of maintenance.

Soil Solutions®  provides its benchmark product EBS™  as a extremely cost effective and sustainable solution.

EBS soil stabilizer - Road constructionOnce the road has been graded, shaped, with drainage and compacted, EBS™  is applied as a surface seal. The initial application will perform for 12+ months. The result is a solid surface which is protected from run off and erosion and a dust free surface. This treatment ensures the retention of the road material and allows for a superior road surface. Once an EBS™ Surface Seal is applied the road will NEVER require grading again, only a maintenance application of the surface seal.
