Durable Roads in Africa – “Paving the Future”

A well-constructed road makes travel and commerce easier. But in Mozambique, only 23% of the roads are in usable condition. This has turned regional integration into a very big policy issue.

The African country needed roads that could stand up to the hammering of the 880 trucks that make a daily trek along the N4 Toll Road Road, a trade route connecting South Africa to Mozambique.

DuPont partnered with WBHO to help increase durable roads in Africa by providing Elvaloy, a high performance polymer designed to help bitumen withstand the heavy loads and traffic volumes.
