ACCORDING TO BRYAN Perry, managing director. The Concrete Institute, South Africa is not seriously considering concrete for road building eas either concrete or concrete block paving (CBP). In a country where cost-effectiveness and sustainability are central to procurement decisions, authorities have yet to realise the benefits of using concrete in road building. Perry, who authored the book Concrete Roads: A Sustainable Solution, will be tackling the subject at this year's African Construction and Totally Concrete Expo. The publication covers the environmental, economic and social aspects of concrete pavements and draws on international experience to demonstrate that concrete pavements are a sustainable solution for South Africa.
