2017 - NZ - Pavement Stabilization Best Practice Guide

New Zealand pavement engineers, in collaboration with colleagues in South Africa and Australia, are recognised internationally as leaders in the use of stabilisation in highway, road, airport, port and industrial hardstand pavement applications. Stabilisation is used to rectify a deficiency in a soil, aggregate or surfacing material. Stabilised materials contribute to the strength and performance of pavements at all levels: subgrade; subbase; base and surfacing.  Applied research into and development of leading edge testing and design knowledge, coupled with significant improvements in the capacity and effectiveness of stabilisation construction plant and work site processes now offer the wider transport industry in New Zealand relatively safe, efficient and sustainable pavement construction, rehabilitation and maintenance options incorporating stabilisation.  This research was undertaken to bring together informed, current technical advice from a variety of sources to enable road controlling authorities, consultants and contractors in New Zealand to successfully investigate, design, construct, maintain and operate pavements with stabilised components

Chris and Lis

We are Lis Pedersen and Chris Bennett. We’ve been married over 30 years and each found our way to New Zealand in the early 1980s from Denmark and Canada respectively. Golden Bay has been our happy place for almost 20 years and we are now based in Pohara just above the beach, with our two cats Coco and Max.
