Looking back and looking forward

Major achievements made in the asphalt and specialist treatments sectors over the last decade and a half are reported in this issue of the magazine, first published in 1997. A comprehensive review from materials expert Martin Heslop looking back at the key technical developments over the last 15 years features on pages 10 to 12.

Several of our sponsors talk about their own experiences of product innovations and the changing marketplace over that time.

Articles in this edition cover a broad spectrum. They include a look at the use of sulphur as an ingredient in road construction materials and efforts by a support services company to establish itself as a provider of micro asphalt carriageway surfacing.

Durability of thin surfacing over the last 15 years, improvements in safety when handling bitumen and development of low temperature asphalt are also examined in these pages.

Efforts to overcome the country’s pothole problems are discussed by Matthew Lugg who helped to compile the recent Government Potholes Review and Howard Robinson of the Road Surface Treatments Association welcomes this review.
