remove loose material.
b) Surface will be lightly wetted
c) The raised kerb will be covered with a board or any appropriate protection method to
avoid touching prime coat to the kerb stone.
d) MC 30 will be used as prime coat and sprayed uniformly by a mechanical sprayer over
the surface at the rate of 0.55 to 0.75 kg / sq.mand let to curing more than 48 hours.
II. Asphalt Base Course(Provisional)
a) Approved mid design will be used from approved asphalt Plant.
b) The surface (over prime coat) will be prepared free of dirt, dust etc.
c) 32 tons maximum capacity of dump. truck will be provided to convey the materials
from the asphalt plant to the site. These tippers will be lightly sprayed with very thin
layer of lubricant to prevent the sticking the mixture to the tipper body.
d) The number of dump trucks will be depending on the requirement of material and the
distance of haulage.
e) The paving operation will be performed by an asphalt paver moving in a single mat at
width of 3.5 to 4 m.
f) Level control will be achieved by either a mat reference system by using automatic
sensor, while materials are laid to a minimum thickness specified or to a wire
reference system where then finished level is the datum.
g) The paving speed of machine will be low 1st gear.
h) Hand spreading will be only in restricted and inaccessible areas and where machine
laying is not possible to undertaken.
i) The screw man, foreman, and site engineer will constantly monitor the level as work
j) Breakdown rolling will follow immediately behind the paving machine. Thereafter
smooth vibrating steel wheeled rolling moving in an orderly manner, starting from
edge and progressing towards the center maintaining overlap as required where the
camber to be formed, and from inside edge to outside edge where super elevation to
be formed. The first pass of the breakdown rolling will be without vibration.
Thereafter, there will be a maximum number of 4 further passes with vibration.
k) Immediately after the compaction of rolling by the steel wheeled roller, a 13 tones
pneumatic smooth tire roller will be deployed to continue the rolling in the similar
way to a maximum number of 12 passes. The tire pressure of this roller will be
checked before commencement and maintained at the rate of 150 psi. Therefore, we
will use two tire rollers.
l) The final finish will be accomplished when the compacted surface has stabilized and
does not show sign of displacement of cracking, by deploying a third steel wheeled
roller without vibration for a further of 6 passes.
m) Longitudinal joints will be located at the center of the roads while traverse joints at
the end of the lane.
n) If the abutting laying width or length of succeeding strip is not continue in same day,
the joints will be cut by using a jack hummer flat chisel or by using an asphalt cutter to
an even line. All loosened materials shall be discarded. The whole face of the joint
shall then be given a very light tack coat applied by brush before the next strip is
o) Following testing will do after laying base course
i. Core test on 2nd day.
ii. Marshal test
Tack Coat (Provisional)
a) The surface preparation will be done for the tack coat by coat by using an air
compressor to make surface free of dust, dirt, sand, etc while using a hand brush to
remove stain.
b) The kerb will be covered with a board to avoid sticking tack coat to the kerb stone.
c) MC 30 cut-back bitumen or SS1H emulsion will be used as tack coat
d) Tack coat will be uniformly sprayed by using a distributor to the rate of 0.25 to
0.35/Liters / m2.
e) Tray test will be performed at site to control the rate of application.
f) The wearing course will not lay until the tack coat has cured.
III. Asphalt Wearing course
a) Approved mix design will be used for wearing course from approved plant.
b) An Asphalt paver machine with automatic level sensor will be used to lay materials.
The speed of the machine to be maintain in low first gear in order to avoid tearing
with the surface and continuity of laying asphalt on the site with two meters per
minute max capacity of operation.
c) The automatic sensor for leveling will be placed on the top of raised kerb to get
proper level and also on existing asphalt surface by using the cut off shoe mostly in
existing longitudinal joint.
d) Hand laying will be limited to areas which are inaccessible for the paver machine.
e) The finish pavement will be checked by using 3 meter straight edge placing
crosswise position and measuring the tolerance by dipping.
f) Just after and behind the laying the steel wheeled breakdown roller will be
deployed to rolling without vibration for the initial first pass and second pass with
g) Two pneumatic tire roller will be used for intermediate rolling to follow the
breakdown rolling, while the asphalt is well above the min temperature, on which
densification can be achieve, and intermediate rolling will be continue until the
asphalt has thoroughly compacted.
h) Smooth steel wheeled roller without vibration will be used to achieve enhance
finishing with removing rollers marks.
i) Cooking oil will be used instead of spraying water from the sprinkler of all roller in
order to avoid the suddenly drop of temperature of asphalt while rolling.
j) Following tests will do after wearing course
