Construction of Pavements and Sub-Bases
Pavement and major roads require a strong foundation that will ensure the safe movement of vehicles without causing danger to the road users. This is especially so because roads experience a high number of vehicles on them each day. Before these pavements are constructed, several layers must be put into consideration.
Concrete Pavement Sub-Base
Concrete pavement sub-base is a layer that protects the soil. The layer compacts and protects the soil so that it isn’t damaged. The material that is laid over the soil, and is used for the sub-base, is aggregate.
The reason why pavement must have a sub-base is because a vehicle’s weight needs strong support. Concrete pavement sub-bases are known to be a critical part in spreading the load weight evenly across the road. This ensures that the foundation is strong for the pavement that is being constructed, which provides the road with longer use over time.
If the sub-base is not constructed in a way that supports a heavy amount of traffic, the concrete could product spots that sink. These “soft spots” can spread to lead to more road damage. This is why aggregates are used as the sub-base to provide the support needed to prevent the road from bending.
