    Project Code: 184
    This product is developed to withstand load on the road surface and can distribute the load evenly to the soil underneath. It helps to prolong the life of the road and able to withstand the load up to 5 tons especially for areas with soft soil.
Project Overview

This product is named as Conc Matt (taking the concept of a mattress) and is developed by JKR technician/engineers to withstand load on the road surface and distribute the load evenly to the soil underneath. The product features are as follows:-

·         Rectangular shape concrete with dimension of 1.0m by 1.0m and 50mm thickness

·         Strength is 25N/mm2 which is built from BRC layers

·         Suitable for usage in swampy areas, peat soil and low elevation lands.

·         It functions as separator between the road base layer and soft soil. It also prevent the main road materials sink into the soft soil.

By using this product, the construction of the road will save time and prolong the life of the road. 

The functions of foundation are to be able to reduce the rate of settlement of soil. Settlement means the gradual downward movement of an engineering structure, due to compression of the soil below the foundation. As such, the JKR technician/engineers has developed an innovative product as a foundation for road construction on soft soil.
