Interlocking Paving Stones Pavement as a Solution to Marshy Roads

Oluwapelumi O. Ojuri

Abstract


This study is focused on the use of interlocking paving stones pavement for marshy roads and high groundwater table terrain. The permeable interlocking paving type of stones was used to combat intrusion of underground/saline water for the road of case study (Akin-Adesola Street, Victoria Island, Lagos). Hydrogeologic data, i.e., groundwater level information for marshy roads terrain including the area of case study was obtained in form of investigation hole/borehole data. Different scientific tests and researches put together show the effectiveness and durability of the modified exfiltration system type of permeable pavement for high ground water table terrain.
