An ultra-thin continuously reinforced concrete pavement (UTCRCP) on the N1 freeway near the Huguenot Tunnel in the Western Cape has made engineering history. Designed by a joint venture between UWP Consulting and PDNA Consulting Engineers, the UTCRCP was placed on a 4,3 km long section of truck crawler lane. This was the first large-scale application of UTCRCP technology in the world.
