Asphalt pavement rejuvenation works trialled

Published: 15 Aug 2019

Council is about to trial an asphalt pavement rejuvenation system at Rural View.

Contractor Colas Solutions will undertake the works using a water-based bitumen rejuvenation agent.

It is aimed at extending the life of the asphalt road pavement before major rehabilitation or reconstruction of the roadway is necessary, reducing maintenance costs.

As part of the trial, works will be carried out in Talara Court, Driftwood Court and Harriet Street, Rural View, this Saturday (August 17) when crack sealing is done.

Traffic control will be in place. Motorists are asked to take care and obey any instructions of road controllers.

At this stage, the seal coat spraying works are expected to be done a week later.

Residents will be notified via a letterbox drop about those works as some road closures will be necessary.

Council will also provide further advice on those works.
