Soil stabilisation is a sustainable method for the construction of in-situ bound soil base for infrastructure
Where longer lasting and/or heavier loadings are required RoadCem is the proven answer. Just a 1% addition
by weight of cement enables cement to become a far superior soil binder.
Winner of multiple industry awards the Walton on Thames Road bridge built for Surrey County Council by
Costain/Atkins used cement with added RoadCem to create really strong bound soil crane and piling rig
platforms from the existing alluvial site soils.
With no added surface protection and/or cover these stabilised soil working platforms were used for the
two-year construction period without damage by heavy plant and crawler cranes. The heaviest loadings were required for the Demag CC2800-1 Crawler Crane shown below (max load 80t m2). Even so these severe requirements were comfortable met by a factor 3X.
