In a ceremony at the Royal Lancaster Hotel in London, England, on the night of Oct. 18, 2017, Tensar International took home the Highways Award for the Highway Industry Product of the Year. The company was honored for its Spectra Pavement Optimisation System.
The system is a comprehensive approach to optimizing pavement structure based on Tensar TriAx geogrids. The company says the system creates a mechanically stabilized aggregate layer that helps improve overall pavement performance and reduces pavement management costs.
The awards, sponsored by the UK’s Highways and Smart Highways magazines, honors a company bringing a product or service to the market that has initiated a “change of thought” approach or technique, and that has made an impact on the highways industry through sustainability, efficiency and cost savings.
