Technical and Economical Feasibility of Pavement Widenings in Cement Concrete in the Netherlands

Paper by STET KRAMER NIJSSEN JURRIAANS from ISCR 11th 2010 Seville Spain

In 2009 the Dutch Parliament amended special laws to speed up road widening projects. This situation opened possibilities for sustainable concrete pavements needing less maintenance, especially for the right-hand lane that takes the heavy traffic. This paper presents the results of a study carried out in 2009, by a working group of CROW (Netherlands Information and Technology Centre for Transport and Infrastructure) into the technical and economic feasibility of widening dual carriage motorways in concrete in the Netherlands [1].
