Top-down cracks are prevalent in India – probably because of high horizontal tensile stresses in surface layer due to overloaded trucks and high inflation pressures. They lead to accelerated pavement distress unless sealed immediately. While crack sealing with emulsion is a prevalent practice at Cube, we now use Hot-in-Place Portable Recycling for preventive maintenance.
While CIPR is one of the commonly used methods for full-depth reclamation of asphalt pavements word wide, it is not so common in India. As per the maintenance philosophy of Cube Highways – for resource optimization and sustainable environment – CIPR was used experimentally for about 24 lane km on Mahua – Bharatpur section where stripping of lower DBM layers were observed.
When the pavement has varying depths of distress, Cube Highways considers Hot-in-Plant Recycling (HIPR).
When the pavement has extensive cracking but has good remaining life, to avoid milling and reflection of cracks, road mesh is used below the overlay.
MacGrid is a specialized geogrid for asphalt reinforcement, made from glass fiber strands, with a polymeric coating.
RoadAID is a centralized platform which allows O&M Team and Managers to real-time report and monitor O&M activities.
Falling Weight Deflectometer (FWD) is a state-of-the-art pavement testing unit for determining structural parameters of the pavement
Network Survey Vehicle (NSV) is a state-of-the-art pavement testing unit for determining functional parameters of the pavement.
Cube Highways has a state-of-the-art data center with a 750sqft video wall; where 24*7 streaming of toll plaza feed is monitored.
