Country Road – Sud West Fryslan, Netherlands

Sud West Fryslan, Netherlands - 2018

Project Description

FORTA-FI was used to reinforce a country road in Sud West Fryslan in the Netherlands. For this road section, fiber was used in the intermediate layer of the road because it is the thickest. By focusing the fiber in this layer future reflective cracking will be prevented. For this project 600 tons of fiber reinforced asphalt was used in a 1,500 m x 3.0 m wide section, and the asphalt was laid at a thickness of 5 cm. Schagen Infra decided to reinforce the road with FORTA-FI to prevent the light cracking and rutting that was occurring due to the high-volume agricultural traffic.

Key Points

  • Extended Pavement Life
