Bamburi Concrete Paved Roads

Why Concrete?

Long service life

Concrete roads can be designed to lifespans of 40 years or more and actual constructions have been known to exceed over 60 years. The rigid nature of concrete roads enables resistance to heavy axle loads from trucks and spreads them over a greater area.


Safety and Environment

The bright nature of concrete roads in significantly improved reflectance and night time visibility as compared to blacktopped surfaces especially in wet weather. The versatility of concrete is expolited to provide skid resistance through macro surface modification by grooving, tining or brushing to provide excellent skid resistance and improved traction.


Concrete is an eco friendly material which has less greenhouse gas emissions during production compared to crude oil refining for a bitumen end product.


Local Availability

Concrete is made form locally available materials i.e cement, sand and aggregates and it saves the country foreign exchange, compared to impotted bitumen.
