Pavement engineering

Our Pavement Engineering Team provides a wide range of specialist services.

Scheme identification and forward maintenance programming

Sections of the Principal Road Network (PRN) requiring maintenance are identified by Pavement Consultancy staff using data provided by the Surveys Team; deflectograph, SCANNER, SCRIM and visual condition surveys.

Pavement investigations and analysis

Once a scheme has been accepted, a detailed investigation is carried out which includes visual condition, coring and examination of the deflection data.

Design of maintenance treatments

Analysis of the collected data enables a cost effective (20 year design life) maintenance scheme in terms of inlay or overlay thickness to be determined and a full treatment schedule to be drawn up.

Skid resistance analysis

SCRIM data is used in conjunction with accident data by our Pavement Consultancy to identify skid deficient sites and prepare a signing schedule on the strategic road network. Sites are also prioritised for maintenance on a cost-benefit basis.

Footway structural condition assessment & treatment advice

Testing and condition assessment advice based on the use of a PRIMA light weight deflectometer, to establish current footway condition and advise on targeted treatment of defects.

Consultancy Advice

Our Engineers are available for advice on projects large or small as construction advances.
