Potholes on roads during rainy season

Potholes on roads during rainy season

Potholes on roads during rainy season

(OP)
During rainy season in India we face enormous problems due to potholes on tarred roads.At some places they are as big as 5 feet diameter and 1 foot deep at the center. Needless to say the traffic moves at snails pace, two wheeler meet with accidents, cars and trucks get damaged their axle breaks in many cases.
Is there some foam like compound which will fill the gap immediately upon spraying and last at least for a month.The idea is in monsoon 2-3 such filling will solve the problem and then after monsoon proper repairing with tar and metal can be done. This will save a lot of hardships to travelers and also save on fuel, medical expenses of accident victims, vehicle repair expenses and will also save environment by emission of less gases in the atmosphere.

RE: Potholes on roads during rainy season

The answer is likely, no, otherwise, people would already be using it. Whatever fills the pothole has to support the weight imposed by semi wheels, so concrete, rock, or asphalt are pretty much it.

The secondary, possibly, primary issue, is the undermining of the road surface, which limits you to asphalt

Thanks IRstuff for your reply.
However I am looking for some sort of compound (may be a 2 part or 3 part system) which after spreading on the potholes hardens and adheres with the ground firmly. It's OK even if it lasts for say month.That also will save a lot of hardships.

RE: Potholes on roads during rainy season

I understood your question; the answer remains unchanged. Moreover, anything that;s engineered beyond asphalt or concrete is extremely expensive relatively speaking. Then, of course, there's the aftermath; whatever you put in, either stays and has to be removed for a more permanent solution, or gets dislodged and has to be prevented from clogging up the sewers with debris.
