Review of density compliance systems for subgrade and embankment construction
- Project Overview
- Contract Reports
Adequate compaction at every stage of construction ensures we achieve stronger roads and the layers themselves will able to withstand the destructive erosive forces of water. Each type of material and each layer of construction needs to be appropriately tested to ensure they meet the required level of compaction before work can continue. Some of the test methods used are time consuming or destructive and WARRIP is reviewing our tests against national and international practices. If more efficient, safe, reliable test methods can be identified, this could significantly assist our construction industry projects across the extensive WA road network.
