Safe and comfortable surfaces

A concrete surface is totally free of rutting so that there is no potential for hydroplaning.  The modern technique of exposed aggregate concrete offers an excellent low-noise and skid resistant riding surface.  The noise levels are equivalent to those of a stone mastic asphalt surface, not only immediately after construction but over the lifetime of the pavement.  If the right aggregates are used on top of the pavement the skid resistance performances are durable as well.

 

Other cement and concrete credentials concern:

Durability and longevity, constituting a cost-effective and environmental advantage;

Techniques of soil treatment and land remediation;

Permeable pavements;

Recyclability of concrete;

Use of low energy cements;

Lower fuel consumption for heavy trucks;

Reduced lighting costs and urban heat island effect;

No danger of leaching.
