Before the construction of any types of bituminous layer over and existing pavement, the existing surface is cleaned and a thin bituminous layer is spread over the existing surface of the road .
Mar 23, 2017 a. Function of Sub base in Road Cross Section. It enables traffic stresses to be reduced to acceptable levels in sub-grade in the Road Cross Section so that excessive deformation is prevented. It acts as a working plate form for the construction of upper pavement layers. Acts as a drainage layer, by protecting the sub grade from wetting up.
The type of flexible pavement that consists of a directly placed bituminous layer over the sub-grade layer is known as full-depth asphalt pavement. Such a type of flexible pavement can withstand the considerable intensity of stresses and is usually preferred in areas where local construction materials are not available.
Apr 29, 2020 Sub-grade preparation works involve Earthwork is one of the major works involved in road construction. It involves the removal of top layer of soil, vegetation.Road area is prepared for the finished formation level. This is usually done using a manually and mechanically like tractor shovel, grader etc. Below the formation level, the soil is known as the sub - grade.
Jul 13, 2021 Road construction techniques were gradually improved by the study of road traffic, stone thickness, road alignment, and slope gradients, developing to use stones that were laid in a regular, compact design, and covered with smaller stones to produce a solid layer . Modern roads tend to be constructed using asphalt andor concrete .
Part 8 Pavement Construction provides advice on the general requirements for the management of quality assurance, construction planning, earthworks, subsurface drainage, unbound pavements, stabilised pavements, sprayed bituminous surfacings, asphalt pavements and surfacings and concrete pavements.

Pavement Quality Concrete PQC Pavement Quality Concrete PQC is cement concrete made with large size aggregates in accordance with IRC specifications and laid over a dry lean concrete sub-base. This construction is used specifically for highway concrete pavements and for airport runway pavements as it can take heavy loads.
Nov 11, 2020 One type of road pavement. Flexible pavement is the pavement which possess negligible flexural strength. And, The flexible pavement layer may reflect the non recoverable as well as recoverable deformations of the lower layer including sub grade on the upper layers and also to the pavement surface.
The oldest known road in the U.K. is near the River Brue in southwestern England Coles, 1989. Actually, the road is a 6,000 year old walkway which was discovered in 1970 in a peat bog. The construction of the road coincides with the arrival of the first farmers in the U.K. about 4,000 B.C. Telford and Macadam Telford
Pavements made from bituminous material, gravel pavements, and hardened macadam pavements are examples of flexible pavements. The flexible pavements are popular in India because of the following reasons 1. Construction is easy and cheap. 2. The construction of a road pavement can be easily done with locally available materials. 3.

Road construction is the process of keeping a road in a state of good repair. The task consists of paving, reclaiming andor rehabilitating the degraded pavement so it can be brought to a more optimized and safe condition. Road construction can entail repairing a portion of the road or completely demolishing and rebuilding the entire road.
Jan 08, 2015 Construction of flexible pavement. 1. The Public Works Department establish in the year 1854. At that time PWD was responsible for the construction of roads,buildings,railways as well as flood control,irrigation and military works.The organizations construction works is directly connected to the national programme of development and reconstruction.
Road construction always faces the problem of cost, because hung financial resources are generally required to acquire equipment and various materials such as graded aggregate, laterite, tar, or asphalt, timber, concrete, steel, and others.
