RURAL ROADS: CONSTRUCTION
Detail:
RURAL ROADS: CONSTRUCTION
Product: Design specifications and construction methodologies for rural roads.
Application: Road construction in rural areas.
Feature: The technology comprises of categorisation of rural roads based on minimum acceptable serviceability levels, a simple strength index for evaluating sub-grades, design curves for two categories of rural roads based on traffic and strength indices, low cost and labour intensive construction techniques, maintenance practices, an animal drawn road roller and water bowser for rural road construction. Design thickness of roads is determined from the evolved design curves.
Commercialisation: Field construction carried out on pilot scale and appropriate design curves for rural road construction evolved.
Economy: --------
Investment: --------
Equipment: Standard soil testing equipment (IS:2720).
Raw materials: Locally available low cost materials, soils aggregates.
Institute: Central Road Research Institute.
