M11 Resurfacing Project: Kilsaran Road Surfacing & Contracting Team
Featured Products: Stone Mastic Asphalt
Client: Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII)
Contractor: Jon’s Civil Engineering Ltd
The M11 Loughlinstown to Junction 5 Pavement Scheme, carried out under TII’s High Speed Road Pavement Renewals Framework, involved the removal and replacement of almost 80,000 square metres of surface course on a 3km stretch of the motorway.
The project involved laying approximately 8,000 tonnes of Stone Mastic Asphalt surface course in accordance with the TII Specification for Road Works. As this motorway is one of Ireland’s busiest roads, with traffic volumes in excess of 100,000 vehicles per day, the project was carried out during the night.
To achieve a more durable surface and eliminate the need for cold longitudinal joints, the surface course was laid in echelon. This involved four of our Vogele paving machines laying the material, side by side, in one pass across the full width of the carriageway.
