Intelligent Road Solutions deliver positive impact on project costs and sustainability

Intelligent Road Solutions deliver positive impact on project costs and sustainability

Intelligent Road Solutions is a completely new approach to road construction and road improvements that provides innovative and engineered solutions through the combining of technologies which deliver long lasting, better performing roads, that require significantly less maintenance while simultaneously delivering cost effective solutions and reduced environmental impact.

The Intelligent Road Solution is a combination of four unique processes:

Road Recycling

Soil Solutions has recently solidified an agreement with FAE to act as a distributorship for their Road Recycler Machines.

These Multi-task road recyclers have the ability to improve and recycle in-situ asphalt pavement materials. The implementation of an effective asphalt recycling method provides not only significant savings in both time and cost but also a substantial reduction to the impact on the community and environment during the construction process.

The NEW MTL Model

Using these innovative machines improves the road construction process, increases cost effectiveness and the overall sustainability of the road project. All units come with an injection system for EBS Soil Stabilisation, which makes this the perfect combination of technology for any road project.

The Road Recycler attachments are attached to a tractor and offer a lower budget solution for road construction, upgrades and asphalt recycling in rural or remote locations, as these machines are logistically easier and more cost effective to use.

There are four different models to meet the requirements of any budget or project. The ability of these Recycler Machines are numerous and include: milling bedrock into useable layer works material without the requirement for a crushing and screening operation; construction to a measured depth up to 400mm; and applying EBS Soil Stabilizer at the precise depth and amount.

Engineered Base Stabilizer

EBS is a multi-dimensional nano-polymer that binds soil particles and is added to existing sub standard in-situ soils for increased CBR and increases PI to allow for bonding. EBS results in immediate reduction in costs as it reduces the amount of imported aggregate required. EBS can be accurately added using the Recycler attachment machines.

It is also applied as a Surface Sealer on Gravel Roads and Airstrips to provide a hard all-weather surface. EBS checks all of the boxes with cost reduction and reduced environmental impact and can be used in combination with Road Recycling Machines.

Geogrid Technology

Geogrid provides a highly advanced biaxial grid that strengthens the existing layer works especially in sandy soils. These grids are manufactured to the size, and strength specification required and are used to provide additional strength to layer works in substandard soils to allow for the construction of roads, parking areas, and foundations. These grids hold the aggregate tightly in place and allow for the placement of additional layers in order to achieve the specification required.

Dynamic Compaction

Starting with the initial civil works, dynamic compaction is used to reduce the cost and time required for the cut to fill part of the layer works construction. With dynamic compaction the need for excavation, loading, removal and placement of material is eliminated.

By incorporating the use of dynamic compaction machinery into the construction of roads, rails and port facilities allows for a substantial decrease in the cost of the traditional cut to fill layers and can render a savings up to 60% or more of the cost of construction as well as the cost of crushing and screening of selected materials.
