M25 London – IKO Permatrack

Connect Plus (client) required a long-term solution for their road repair project as the aforementioned road surface was already failing.

The repairs covered some of the most critical parts of the Motorway (M25), including elevated structures such as the section linking the M25 to the M1. A mastic asphalt solution (namely the IKO Permatrack system) was chosen due to its Carbon Zero environmental credentials, durability, speed of installation, and long-term life-span.

All IKO Permatrack road surfacing repair systems are a technically advanced, polymer modified asphalt, comprising of a flexible waterproofing layer and a high modulus surface course. They are covered by a BBA HAPAS certificate 02/H072. This made it the ideal solution to repairing the badly rutted and potholing carriageway surfacing of the M25.

The IKO Permatrack installation was carried out by Techjoint Ltd to an excellent standard. The project was completed successfully on time and to the client’s satisfaction, with IKO Permatrack now a regularly chosen system for other emergency road surfacing repairs.

Mohammed Jaja, Construction Manager for Connect Plus, stated: “We previously specified IKO Permatrack materials and found them to be the perfect solution for inlaid crack repair for numerous bridge joints and crack repairs, so it was the obvious ‘go-to’ system.

“The fact that all the carbon produced, from manufacture to installation, can be offset is not just great from an environmental point of view, but it is ethically the right thing to do.”
