Abstract

Many materials resulting from domestic and industrial activity could be used as a replacement for natural aggregates in road construction. Environmental protection organisations have raised concern over the potential for resultant contamination of ground and surface water systems. The leaching properties of a selection of aggregate materials are being examined in a testing programme designed to progressively simulate the real conditions within a road construction. The testing programme is described, illustrative data is presented and initial conclusions are drawn.
