Road and paving applications

Hyson Cells is suitable for both new construction and for rehabilitation projects. The field of applications within paving is very diverse :
  • Rural roads
    • Build with an integrated side drain
    • Use on-site materials
  • Urban roads
    • Quick rehabilitation with the Hyson Cells overlay gives minimum traffic disruption
  • Freeways
    • Specially suitable for truck lanes
    • Overlays on existing roads
  • Container yards
    • New yards
    • Overlays to rehabilitate old yards with minimum disruption using quicksets
    • Build directly on damaged layerworks
  • Mine haulage roads
    • Underground trackless mining
    • Open cast haulage roads
  • Causeways
    • Light 80 Kn traffic
    • Heavy mine traffic
  • Aircraft runways and hard standing
    • A special need for fast track rehabilitation
