Bromley leading the way with more sustainable road network
Published Thursday, 15 October 2020
An innovative approach to road building and repair, which will not only reduce carbon emissions, but also reduce traffic delays caused by roadworks is being introduced across the borough.
Working with its highways maintenance partner, Riney, Bromley Council has committed to using warm mix asphalt for road maintenance moving forward, a solution that involves laying asphalt at lower temperatures than traditional mixes. This means the new surface can be laid faster, it sets quicker, is much more sustainable to produce and best of all, enables roads to reopen more quickly, getting traffic back on the move.
