Southern Expressway Stage I – Pavement Design and Construction

Rob Bremert

Stage 1 of the Southern Expressway project between Darlington and Reynella has been one of the most significant road projects in recent times from environmental, geotechnical and pavement design aspects. Over the past year there have been very interesting presentations on the former two of these issues. In this month’s talk Rob Bremert presented the third in this series of talks and concentrated the aspect of pavement design. In his presentation Rob discussed the issues involved with pavement configurations, traffic loading and life cycle costing. He also discussed the problems that occurred during construction of the pavement.
