CEMENT CONCRETE PAVEMENT
Concrete pavement comes under the classification of rigid pavement. The life of a rigid pavement is much higher than that of a flexible pavement.
Even though the cost of rigid pavement is very high, owing to its longer service life, better riding surface and low maintenance cost, rigid pavements are widely used in the present road construction. The details and construction procedure for un- reinforced, dowel jointed plain cement concrete pavement are given under Section 600 of MoRTH Specifications for Road and Bridge works (5th revision).
