Abstract

The widening of National Road no. 66 at the Bussang Pass in southern Alsace is the first "major" job on a national road using the Pneusol technique, a combination of old tires and soils: 600 m of walls 2 to 7 m high; 55,000 passenger-car tires and 2,000 truck tires (a total of 500 tonnes!). Precious knowledge is gleaned from the diverse conditions of use.
