Bafoussam, the West regional capital, construction company Razel, is currently
testing roller-compacted concrete (RCC) for road construction as part of the
“Capitales regionals” program; a scheme financed by the French government
through C2D (Debt Reduction and Development Contracts).
to an expert interviewed by Cameroon Tribune, the roller-compacted
concrete makes it possible to give the road a minimum duration of 30 years,
compared to 15 years reconditioned by 3 to 5 years of maintenance for
“bituminous concrete” (BB).
The RCC is a material used in Canada for 60 years, which enables road construction at a budget three times lower than bituminous concrete, the expert said. The material will also be used in the cities of Bertoua and Garoua.https://www.businessincameroon.com/construction/2603-8979-cameroon-tests-roller-compacted-concrete-rcc-a-three-times-cheaper-material-that-doubles-road-life
