The project

The housing development in Lostock Hall is owned by Morris Homes, one of the country’s largest privately owned house builders. Based in Cheshire, they provide new homes across the North West, Midlands and South of England. The site required surfacing installation and HALO accredited installers, Huyton Asphalt, was appointed.

HALO’s Rubber Pave was provided throughout the project in a move that made these the first ‘rubber roads’ in a new housing development.

The solution

HALO’s Rubber Pave enables old tyres to be converted into new roads and footpaths. As a result, they help to offset the environmental impact of highways maintenance activities, contributing significantly to the wider sustainability drive.

Rubber Pave incorporates recycled tyres combined with HALO warm-mix asphalt technology to provide an environmentally sustainable asphalt with a reduced carbon footprint.

Typically, one tyre per tonne of asphalt is recycled, giving the potential to recycle about 500 tyres per kilometre of road, depending on layer thickness.

In terms of the performance of HALO Rubber Pave vs a conventional SMA materials performance, testing has found that that the use of the rubber mechanically restricts crack propagation and that it provides some low grade PMB flexibility benefits.

In addition, HALO Rubber Pave delivers similar performance characteristics to those required from a 50 pen SMA and provides superior performance in terms of restricting crack propagation.
