During this bridgedeck refurbishment, the trunk route maintenance operator, required 16 chamber covers to be installed with a waterproof, multi-purpose, flexibilised bedding, haunching and slot-filling mortar with the benefit of a long-term, maintenance-free design life.
Epiflex was specified and used for the installation. Shims cast from Epiflex were supplied so that the installation was completed with a homogenous material, supporting the cover frame from underneath. The slot is filled up to the running surface and an anti-skid finish is provided by the application of Bauxite grit.
A69 trunk route operator, Roadlink, is delighted with the material performance and confirmed in 2015 that chamber covers and frames have remained intact, including those subjected to the heaviest traffic loading.
Covers are situated directly on the wheel-line of the east and west bound carriageways.
