CCA Road Note 09 by Cement and Concrete Association

A continuously reinforced concrete pavement (CRCP) is structurally stronger than a conventional reinforced concrete pavement and requires no transverse contraction joints, thus ensuring lower maintenance costs and excel lent riding qualities. Since June 1976 the Department] of Main Roads, NSW has completed three continuously reinforced concrete pavements, one in a rural location, two in urban locations. They include a total of 36 lane kilometers in both new construction and reconstruction of existing alignments. The main feature of CRCP is that the longitudinal reinforcement is continuous for the entire length of the pavement.
