Recycled roads

By Lindsay Gale12 March 2008

A joint venture between contractors Tarmac and Mouchel on behalf of the UK's Highways Agency, has pioneered a new recycled road surface. Road surface was removed overnight, taken to Tarmac's Hayes asphalt plant for special processing, including screening to remove oversized aggregate. Each batch was then relaid the following night. A total of 800 tonnes of material was processed in this way, forming 25 % of the new road surfacing laid over 30,000 m2 at junction seven on London's M25.
