Tensar’s Spectra Pavement Optimisation solution proved its flexibility when ground conditions were found to be different from predicted.
- Reduction in pavement thickness to accelerate programme
- Reduced health and safety risks
- £10/sq.m cost saving by using less pavement materials
Associated British Ports needed to revise the design of theaccess roads to its new Ocean Terminal in Southampton, when ground conditions were found to be different from predicted. The route crossed a very confined brownfield site and the road had to be built on a short timescale.
Tensar’s Spectra Pavement Optimisation system allowed the road pavement design to be changed easily to meet actual ground conditions, without delaying construction.The use of Tensar’s independently validated design software, provided a rapid revised design, while maintaining sufficient capacity to cope with the predicted traffic loads of 30 million equivalent standard axle loads (ESALs).
