Re-use of Excavated Material in Trench Reinstatements in the Highway
ISBN: 1 84057 108 X
The policy and practice of material re-use for highway reinstatement are investigated. Although, in some cases, cost savings can be obtained through greater material re-use this needs to be considered against possible premature failure. Approaches to the use of such material are described. The report provides a basis for water companies to review the use of excavated material and consider whether changes would be beneficial.
