Mississauga, Ont. – The
Ready Mixed Concrete Association of Ontario has launched a new web portal created
to provide information on the use, construction and environmental sustainability
of concrete pavements.

The site, is
designed as a platform to engage municipal transportation and public works
departments as well as other areas of local governments, policy and planning
decision-makers and engineers in the discussion on concrete as a pavement
alternative. And also to share information on the significant cost savings,
long service life and environmental benefits that the use of concrete can bring
to a pavements project. 

The portal's content includes:

  • The environmental
    attributes and benefits of concrete pavements.
  • Pavement design and
    costing documents and guides.
  • Street Smart Report –
    equivalent pavement designs for Municipal paving.
  • Access to
    – a free, online pavements cost and design comparison tool for roads and
    parking lots.
  • Profiles and examples
    of concrete pavement projects.

The mission of this new web portal is
to ensure that all transportation stakeholders have the information they need
to make decisions on their infrastructure and pavement projects.
