Brief

City of York Council operates a comprehensive rolling road improvement programme, focussed around maintaining optimum driving conditions across the city’s network of busy roads. In its most recent round of resurfacing, the engineering team dedicated their efforts on identifying which areas were most subject to the stresses of heavy goods vehicles, which included the busy A64 roundabout – an area which had become riddled with potholes and fretting.

Keen to ensure the safety of its road users, and to secure a cost efficient solution for the ongoing performance of the road surface, City of York Council set about finding a manufacturer capable of providing a product which had been specifically created for high stress areas and roundabouts used by large volumes of traffic and heavy goods vehicle

Solution

We recommended the use of its specially formulated SuperCurve – a high performance 10mm polymer modified Asphalt designed and engineered to provide an enhanced surface course for areas like the A64 roundabout.

Created to meet the needs of the local authority’s road renewal programme, SuperCurve is specifically designed to meet the needs of the site application. It incorporates a high grade PBM bitumen specifically tailored for optimum performance, its dense in-situ void properties of <5%, and initial texture depth >1.0mm, make it capable of withstanding the torsional forces seen on high-stress areas of UK roads.

We worked closely with the specifiers of City of York Council’s highways department to deliver a total of 200 tonnes of SuperCurve, which was used to resurface the high stress roundabout and its exits.

SuperCurve is quickly becoming the go-to product for local authorities looking for a reliable, cost effective and durable Asphalt road surface solution which offers ease of installation and unrivalled longevity.
