Crumbs of comfort for roads

Maintenance firm Ringway has completed the installation of a rubber road surfacing system in Salisbury, Wiltshire.

More than 900 tyres were used to produce the rubber crumb material used in the trials.

7,000 sq m of cold lay microsurfacing, incorporating 6 mm high-PSV aggregates and 4 per cent rubber crumb, has been laid during the two-year-long trial.

Experts say rubber crumb mixes are more durable and crack resistant than standard mixes.
