Metrail: M180 Concrete Road Refurbishment (Innovative Resin Injection Technology)
With sections of the motorway in need of refurbishment, Metrail employed a resin-stabilisation technology from Germany to provide innovative, cost-effective and time-efficient solutions for renovating the concrete pavement on a five-kilometre stretch of the east-bound carriageway of the M180, returning that stretch of pavement to Class A without completely replacing the running surface of the motorway.
