How is soil stabilization carried out?

Soil stabilization can be extremely beneficial to your road construction projects and save you time and money. Soil stabilization by using the below method.

  • A powdered soil stabilization agent is added to the earth along the path the road will take.

  • After your soil stabilization agent has set (24hours), the asphalt layer of your road is laid down as with normal road construction.

Benefits of this type of road construction are:

  1. Minimises construction time by up to 80%
  2. Minimises costs by up to 50%
  3. Optimal compressive load
  4. Environmentally friendly
  5. Minimises maintenance costs
