39 Trucks leaving quarry Weighbridge data No of axles Approximately 300 E80’s per day To date E 80’s Traffic

40 Very little distress to date Vertical movement at joints under traffic but no relative movement Rocking of slabs on foam concrete Some corner breaks Plastic shrinkage cracks not affecting performance Observations

41 Ongoing observations Continual recording of instruments to end May Panel to define failure Analysis of results Availability of data Future
