An asphalt solution to a concrete problem?

23 March 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

The A90 trunk road is a critical link between the central belt and the oil and gas heartlands in the north east of Scotland. At Brechin, the A90 forms a 6.3km bypass both northbound and southbound around the cathedral city, approximately midway between Dundee and Aberdeen.

The pavement at Brechin is a continuously reinforced concrete pavement (CRCP), one of only a handful remaining in Scotland. Since its construction in 1994, it has required maintenance on a frequency not normally expected in a pavement of its age and type. This talk will highlight the long timeline, wide range of investigations, local sensitivities and evaluation of suitable engineering options required to enable the potential solution to be delivered. The maintenance option delivered balances network need, value for money and sustainability, and feeds into a longer term strategy for management of this section of the A90 trunk road.

Join Kyle Dickerson and John Scott from BEAR Scotland as they guide you through the past, present and possible future of this unique piece of pavement engineering.
