Councils Maximise Road Budget With Road Maintenance Innovation
Whilst the Roads to Recovery (R2R) programme is an essential element in maintaining localgovernment road networks, for many councils the latest instalment falls short of addressing acritical backlog of road maintenance.
However councils can maximise the impact of theirroad maintenance budgets by incorporating PolyComStabilising Aid into their unsealed road programs.
PolyCom is an award winning innovation thataddresses the problem of sourcing unaffordable finitequarry materials and gravel resources. Proven toreduce maintenance by up to six times, PolyCom issimply added to existing unsealed road materialsduring routine maintenance. Councils procure PolyComin a highly concentrated form, with each 2kg pack ableto treat 50m3, or 500m2 at 100mm depth.
Enough product supply can be transported in the back of a car or utility to treat manykilometres of road.
OHS and environment compliant, procurement of the field-proven PolyCom solution meanscouncils and civil road contractors:
• don’t have to cart new gravel to site
• don’t need to transport large quantities of product, and
• don’t need to mix PolyCom in a water cart.
As PolyCom is applied in granular form with a dry spreader, council works crew simply addwater to the road materials as needed, and work the product in with their existing road plant -grader and roller.
“More and more government departments and road contractors are sharing the benefits ofusing PolyCom, as they discover they can use materials previously considered not suitable forroad construction and maintenance,” explains Steve Hey, Engineering Applications Manager forEarthco Projects, PolyCom distributor for Victoria, NSW and Tasmania. “This has enabled themto make considerable savings on road construction and maintenance as well as lowering theircarbon footprint.”
With an Australia-wide network of distributors, PolyCom is suitable for application in almostany material, and is simple and ready to use.
