concrete pavement design

Roughton has extensive experience in delivering concrete pavement design, where conditions are appropriate.

There are two types of concrete pavement commonly used:

  • Continuously Reinforced Concrete Pavement
  • Jointed Concrete Pavement

Concrete pavements may be desirable for any of the following situations:

  • Railway crossings
  • Approaches to structures
  • For intersections, very sharp bends and approaches in flexible pavement roads that are associated with vehicle braking and acceleration which could cause shoving and rutting of an asphalt pavement
  • For parking areas or roads with pedestrian crossings, adjacent parking, or sidewalks
