US firm wants to improve Indian roadsMay 18th, 2008 - 8:11 pm ICT by admin
New Delhi, May 18 (IANS) An American company says it has technology that can dramatically improve the quality of Indian roads — particularly ahead of the Commonwealth Games scheduled here in 2010. US-based Penn Woods Corp is planning to introduce its “Z-products” and other equipment in the country to bring about changes in the technologies presently used in Indian road construction.
The company said it would introduce three products - a low cost and quick way to give roads a new wearing look, a product designed for application on substantially deteriorated roads as a cost effective alternative to conventional asphalt overlays, and a product used to seal and fill cracks and voids in asphalt and concrete surfaces.
Ashok Sudhakar, managing director of the company, said his products had been used in the US for the past 12 years.
“We are looking forward to the use of this technology on the roads of New Delhi before the commencement of Commonwealth Games. It would most certainly bring a revolution as far as cost effectiveness, sustainability and riding comfort on Indian road is concerned,” he said.
