"Flexible, porous, rubber paving" ... I guess this would be the same
stuff they pour' around childrens plagrounds? Quite robust but expensive
and, not a bad idea. The only thing is, you would still possibly get the
pavement heave, but without the crack!

In the USA they use flexible, porous rubberised paving.
Not sure about in the UK.

Hi Fiona
What John advised is the norm at my LA but it usually requires
resurfacing after a few years. There are not many alternatives as far as
I can see. Cheers Rick Sent from my BlackBerry smartphone from Virgin

Many thanks for your response John.

If it is tarmac you can raise the level to ramp it over major roots. The
local community will value that effort far more than unnecessarily
harming the trees. Sometimes you might have to compromise by severing
the odd root but I wouldn't wory too much about that.

Hi Ron,
Thanks for your reply. I am concerned about the need in some cases, to
sever major structural roots in order to achieve a level surface...

Hi Fiona,

We usually repair the pavement, removing any surfacing roots underneath

enough to get the hard stuff down and just leave it like that ...

Hello,
I have a roads engineer about to carry out remedial work (in two weeks
time..) to pavements where mature street trees have cracked the 
surfacing. Does anyone have a feasible and cost effective solution to 
remediate the damage caused by mature (and still growing) roots in 
close proximity to pavements/roads? I have no direct experience of 
using products such as CellWeb and I note suggestions in the Tree Roots

and the Built Environment but would appreciate if anyone has first hand

knowledge and application in this area?

Many thanks.


Regards,
