    Hard Rubber In Road Asphalt Mixtures For Pavements

    KUALA LUMPUR, March 21 - The works ministry, through the public works department (PWD) is conducting a study on the use of hard rubber in road asphalt mixtures for pavements.

    Deputy Minister Datuk Rosnah Abdul Rashid Shirlin said currently, five pilot projects using hard rubber for road construction were being carried out, with one of them completed.

    "The project which was completed last December is at Jalan Gemas-Rompin, Negeri Sembilan while the other four projects, namely one each in Kedah, Pahang, Kelantan and Selangor will be completed this year.

    "At the moment, the PWD, together with the Malaysian Rubber Board is analysing the performance of the road pavement at the site which has been completed," he said in a question-and-answer session at the Dewan Rakyat today.

    He was replying to Datuk Zainudin Ismail (BN-Jelebu) who wanted to know
    whether the government intended to use rubber as one of the main ingredients in road construction, and the obstacles, if any, involved in using this technology.
