Wigman Road, Nottingham

Case Study
Wigman Road is a major thoroughfare for city traffic. Built originally of concrete on mud flats by Italian prisoners of war in the 1940’s, the road was subsequently black topped.

City engineers have been faced with almost non-stop maintenance ever since, particularly the areas of high stress and areas of relative cracking where the asphalt surfacing passes over the underlying concrete joints.

After months of evaluation, IKO
Permatrack was selected for over 14,000 linear metres of joint repairs, providing a repair capable of accommodating high levels of movement as well as a hard wearing, long lasting surfacing.
