Low-cost sealing for low volume roads

Low-cost sealing for low volume roads was introduced in 2010 in Uganda and it’s being promoted by MELTC. The need for sealing of roads stems from the fact that good quality gravel is depleting and yet the natural renewal process is slow. The conventional sealing method requires high quality materials which usually must be hauled for long distances. Moreover, most roads with low traffic volume may not require materials with such high specifications. The use of locally available materials for sealing of roads has been identified as key in reducing the cost of construction. MELTC offers training in the design and construction of roads using Low-Cost Sealing Technology. The training is intended for Public Roads agencies and Private contracting firms.
