Calcium sulphates, magnesium, potassium and the sodium radicals - these abound in the country indiscriminately and all of them will react with the tricalcium aluminate compounds in the cement or the hydraulic lime which in turn gives you calcium sulphate-aluminates, i.e. 3Ca0a1203.xCaS04.yH20.; this particular reaction (efflorescence) or compound is part of the problem affecting the asphalt surface finish on our roads in Nigeria! You must think about solutions for it so as to check the drain/leakage on your annual budgets; you can find it in this book, folks!
Weighbridges will not necessarily help to stop highways, the type we have in Nigeria, to collapse. Highways should be durable for use under any weather condition particularly where your rail-lines are not functional as it should. Weigh-bridges are used to collect revenue from over loaded juggernauts on highways.
