Abstract:
This paper shows that it is possible to add value to a variety of paving projects ranging from municipal to heavy industrial and airport pavements using concrete segmental paving. This can be achieved using evolutionary forms of paver, new surface finishes and by developing and applying innovatory pavement design and maintenance systems. New paving products are described which illustrate the practical application of value-adding concepts in concrete segmental paving. Moreover, it is shown that the use of innovatory design and maintenance concepts can assist in the production of more economical and competitive forms of pavement that belie the misconception that segmental paving is routinely more expensive than conventional construction.
