5 to 2.At locations where sufficient working width is not available after recycling two lanes of 4m each.3.0m pavement width left untreated (see pictures below) and the issue yet to be resolved. Recycling of slow lane (Towards shoulder):. Due to improper planning of working widths and rigidity in adjustment of working widths during work resulted in about 1. .

5% bitumen content. Practically they are adding 35 to 45% add-mix which results in raised pavement level by 22 to 33mm and costing extra (see pictures below). the reason given by TERPL is problem with existing pavement profile “more undulations more add-mix consumption”. As per mix design add-mix quantity is 35% only with 7.4. .
