Sustainable pavements on the cards in Abu Dhabi

Abu Dhabi's municipality has said building sustainable pavements in the emirate could cut costs by 20% per project, Gulf News has reported. This could be achieved by using geosynthetic materials (polymeric materials used in civil engineering) or by recycling materials used to build pavements, Dr Ahmad Hassan Ali, project design consultant for internal roads and infrastructure at the Municipality of Abu Dhabi City, told the daily. "We have studied a number of methods that could not only make pavements more durable and sustainable but also reduce the cost of construction by 10% to 20%. For each pavement project overseen by the municipality, these methods will be considered and the most feasible one implemented," Dr Ali said.
