After initial tests showed positive results, further Gipave® trials are being carried out in Kent.

In fact, GW Highways (in collaboration with Iterchimica and Tarmac) has undertaken further trials on behalf of Kent County Council, with the aim of demonstrating the effectiveness of Gipave in terms of environmental impact reduction. These tests will help provide meaningful data to support investment in longer-lasting and more sustainable solutions.

KCC’s Cabinet Member for Highways and Transport, David Brazier, said: “This marks the start of our second trial phase of using this material on our roads. If successful, we will also be reducing the carbon impact of road maintenance and contribute towards our target of getting council operations to Net Zero carbon emissions by 2030”.
