Permeable Pavement

Field trial of permeable paving in real life loading conditions (with comprehensive instrumentation testing). The building of Australia’s largest ever tyre-derived permeable pavement surface, in a car park operated by Mitcham City Council in South Australia, is a large-scale field test that will enable the impact of real-life traffic loading to be measured by a comprehensive set of mechanical and storm-water instrumentation; thus verifying the performance of the product under different traffic road conditions. Parameters measured include mechanical performance, mitigation of the surface run-off as well as impact of reduced pollutants flowing to waterways.
