Advantages of Concrete Pavement
Building Better, More Sustainable Roads
When paving heavy-traffic roads, the right material makes all the difference. Concrete is characterized by its proven durability, reduced maintenance, lower carbon footprint, recyclability, ease of construction, and safety benefits — and it is a local material. Concrete pavement delivers superior value and performance — and a lower environmental impact — over a road’s service life.
This is why many municipal and provincial departments of transportation across Canada are actively exploring the use of concrete pavement for their high-traffic, high-wear intersections, interchanges, streets and highways. It is a proven, “best-in-class”, greener solution of choice that is typically more cost-effective over the lifecycle than the alternative paving material for these applications, and ideally suited for Canada’s climate.
