    DescriptionAsphalt concrete is a great material for road surfacing purposes but it’s not always the most sustainable of options. Sandra Erkens, professor of Pavement Engineering Practice, is looking for ways of predicting and extending the lifespan of both existing and new pavement materials. Epoxy asphalt may well hold the key to more durable road surfaces. The beginning of November should see the start of the construction of a trial section on a Noord-Holland road to put the new super asphalt through its paces.
