Maintenance of bituminous roads, Civil Engineering

Maintenance of Bituminous Roads:

The common defects noticed in a bituminous road are :

  • potholes
  • cracks
  • rutting
  • corrugations
  • shoving
  • stripping and loss of aggregates
  • edge breaking
  • loss of riding quality
  • bleeding or fattened surface
  • loss of skid resistance
  • oxidation of bituminous surface

Potholes are repaired by cutting the damaged area to a rectangular shape, applying a tack coat and filling the area with premixed material and compacting. The premixed material is either produced with heated bitumen or preferably a cold mix made with emulsion.
