The concrete bays (4m x 5m x 280mm) were saw cut into smaller section and lifted out using vacuum lift device attached to a wheeled excavator. Type 1 formation was inspected and replaced as required, new dowel bars were drilled and installed using EZ 210B SRA drill, reinforcement placed prior to reinstating using PQX concrete mixed on site, using a volumetric mixer. To accelerate curing of concrete, heated blankets were used. Between 3-5no. concrete bays were repaired on regular basis during weekdays between working hours 22:30 to 05:00 (next morning) and up to 24 bays were repaired on weekend shifts. The carriageways were successfully open to normal traffic at 06:00 AM every morning during the project duration.
