Road Surface Recycling Hot In-Place Recycling Contract

Aug 31, 2023

The City of Greater Sudbury has received the report describing the results of all third-party testing related to the Hot In-Place Recycling (HIR) contract with Road Surface Recycling Ltd. (RSR).

Testing was done in seven different categories, with multiple tests completed within each category. Based on field observations and laboratory testing, the report shows the work completed to date frequently did not meet the specification requirements under contract ENG21-38. The deficiencies described in the report will cause premature distresses and may reduce the expected service life of the HIR material by approximately 30 to 60 per cent, leading to increased maintenance costs.

The report has been provided to RSR, and the City will work with them to determine next steps.
