The text also examines the composition of concrete roads, prestressed concrete roads, and maintenance and repair techniques. The book then discusses the appearance and surface characteristics of concrete and construction in extreme weather conditions. Cement Concrete Roads: The roads having their wearing surface consisting of cement concrete (plane or reinforced) are known as cement concrete roads or concrete roads. These roads are types of rigid pavements and remain in serviceable condition under all weather conditions. Thus concrete roads are also considered as all weather roads. Due to their . Concrete roads are durable and safe. They are considerably less prone to wear and tear defects like rutting, cracking, stripping loss of texture, and potholes that can occur with flexible pavement surfaces. This low maintenance requirement is one of the principal advantages of concrete pavements. There are well-designed concrete pavements that. Urban Concrete Roads Manual Issue 1, Rev. 0, Nov. 5 Section 2: Rigid Pavement Performance Most concrete pavements on urban roads are either plain (non-reinforced) or reinforced concrete. Where concrete is reinforced, reinforcement is usually provided by steel wire mesh placed in the upper half of the Size: 2MB.

Taking a page out of the Bengaluru Corporation’s book, experts suggest to civic body to ditch tar and lay concrete roads, ensuring durability and better maintenance. Advantages of Concrete Roadways. Durability and maintenance free life: Concrete roads have a long service life of forty years, whereas asphalt roads last for ten years. More over, during this service life concrete road do not require frequent repair or patching work like asphalt roads. If Roman roads are considered the beginning of road construction, Telford Pavements are known as the second step of this process, followed by the Macadam Pavements that ultimately lead to the Bitumen Roads. Today, the concrete roads have added another dimension to stability and strength of the roadways. Road Construction Techniques.
