South Australia's Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure has approved Carboncor, an environmentally friendly cold asphalt premix, for use on roads in the State. The DPTI trialed Carboncor Cold Asphalt on Owen Road at the Templers Road junction MM43.6, north of Roseworthy, Gawler, South Australia, in December last year. A total of 31 metric tons was installed into an area of 210 square meters at a nominal thickness of 30 millimeters, including a 12 meter area which required a thickness of 50 millimeters. The road was initially constructed in 1937 and was resealed in 1992. Patch work and repair had constantly been required. Following installation, Carboncor Cold Asphalt proved capable of withstanding light and heavy-duty traffic types, and even though the original road base was severely compromised, it showed little signs of rutting, cracking, lateral movement or delamination from the adjacent asphalt after 3 months.

The trial led DPTI to conclude that Carboncor Cold Asphalt is suitable for routine road maintenance and permanent pothole repairs as well as a replacement for standard hot asphalt in remote locations. Hugo van Loon, DPTI's Senior Asphalt Engineer, said that "I can recommend this cold mix product for a range of road maintenance and repair applications."
