AnyWay Wins 2023 Excellence in Roads African Award for Resilient Infrastructure

The AnyWay team was honoured to accept the inaugural award in the “Resilient Infrastructure” category on behalf of AnyWay and the Ministry of Roads and Highways at the 3rd IRF Africa Regional Congress this April. Our CEO, Zeevik Halber, was present at the award ceremony to accept the 2023 Excellence in Roads African Award for our project; Design and project supervision of road pavements rehabilitation and upgrading through in-situ stabilization of 11.5 km of roads in South La and Community 18 and 20.

AnyWay’s impact on the project: AnyWay was contracted as the main contractor and employed a local construction company for the complete construction works under its supervision. We identified the primary reason for the premature failure of pavements, including out-of-specification materials and inadequate drainage. With increasing rainfall due to climate change, the drainage structures incorporated into existing pavement infrastructure were proving insufficient. AnyWay introduced a design that rehabilitated and upgraded the engineering properties of existing pavement materials. The upgraded pavements became bound sub-base which, together with a new base course layer and surfacing, can adequately accommodate future intense rainfall events. This is part of AnyWay’s dedication to climate-resilient infrastructure. In addition to pavement design services, AnyWay was on site throughout the construction process to ensure that the appropriate quality was achieved for the project. This will allow the pavement to have an excellent return on investment.

The award submissions are evaluated by an independent, international panel of judges with expertise in the roads and transportation industry. This project will set a new standard for the African continent and inspire future infrastructure development. This is an important step towards achieving resilient and reliable road networks for Africa.

Rehabilitating roads in Accra, Ghana, with recycled materials

Accra Ghana Roads

The overall pavement infrastructure in Accra, Ghana, requires upgrading. Ageing roads and climate impacts have caused cracking, potholes and surface deterioration. Overloading from vehicles, using inadequate materials to construct the road, and improper drainage can cause failures. One way to avoid failures and improve pavement infrastructure is to rehabilitate them, reusing the assets within the deteriorated roads.    

Using soil recycling and stabilization techniques to strengthen road pavements 
In-situ pavement recycling reuses previously placed road materials (base, sub-base) followed by stabilization and a new surface seal to create long-lasting quality roads with lower costs than newly constructed pavements. This technique breaks up and aggregates the pavement to a specific depth and reuses it to create a new aggregate material to construct the road moving forward. Stabilizers add strength, durability and robustness to the base course. The process is faster than full reconstruction, allowing roads to reopen sooner and allowing regions to reallocate budgets to other necessary transportation projects.

In this presentation, we will draw upon our experience rehabilitating roads in Accra, Ghana. To do this, we determined the primary cause of the road failure so that we could provide solutions to prevent this from happening again. This proactive approach addresses the root cause and provides suitable rehabilitation solutions to address the issues. Using soil recyclers has proven to be a worthy investment for this region and will provide long-term cost savings through minimized future maintenance.

Helping regions plan and prioritize transportation project routes with satellite data

Helping regions plan and prioritize transportation project routes with satellite data

Picture3

Advancements in technologies are facilitating the ability to quickly capture data through satellites. These satellites can collect highly detailed information on specific areas and empower transportation project managers to effectively optimize route alignment decisions. 

Overnight solutions to previously time-consuming assessments
Satellite technologies assist in several elements of transportation projects. They provide data on flood modeling for drainage and can help select the best route for a new road to overcome elevation and environmental challenges. Previously, mapping had to be done by drone or using laborious field techniques. With satellite data capture, this same sampling can be done overnight and to the same or near detail as the previous methods. This is a far more cost-effective way to gather the same data and move the project forward much faster.  

This is important for evolving African countries that are impacted by climate events. Satellite is key to helping improve transportation project planning, select routes, provide scopes of work and cost-benefit analyses for project options and avoid areas that could involve environmental impacts.

A preliminary engineering design of a very remote project during a global pandemic: The use of satellite technology to plan and design low-volume roads.  Presentation by Alex Campbell, Director of Engineering Solutions
April 27th, 2023 @ 2:00 PM GMT

This presentation will highlight some of the projects that AnyWay conducted during the pandemic. For this project, we conducted a preliminary route alignment along a “missing link” road connecting resource-rich island areas of Papa New Guinea to the city. We provided route alignment using high-def satellite technology and GPS data to calculate distances, rises and falls in elevation and digital surface models of the area. We then created contour maps to plan and route the best alignment possible.  

Helping communities optimize resources 
This unique way of working shows promise for Africa, where there is expected to be a tremendous amount of growth and a need to plan for transportation infrastructure quickly and at scale. This approach will help African communities optimize planning resources and decrease the costs of data collection more accurately than traditional methods. With these techniques, we can deliver the best data possible and provide optimal climate-resilient solutions to transportation challenges.

Keeping up with growth in Africa by rehabilitating highly distressed roads

Keeping up with growth in Africa by rehabilitating highly distressed roads

Ghana Recycled Road

Africa is projected to see the greatest growth of any continent in the world between now and 2050. However, the current pavement infrastructure in most African communities is in poor conditions and not ready to accommodate these population growth projections. The regions are trying to find ways to improve road infrastructure networks proactively.

Cost-effective solutions to help future-proof road networks
Investments in infrastructure now can help regions to capitalize and prepare for population growth. Instead of rebuilding roads using difficult-to-procure, expensive materials, rehabilitation is often a good solution to improve road networks with less time and capital investments. Rehabilitation of highly distressed roads using recycling and stabilization can be an effective long-term strategy for pavement performance to withstand rigorous climate impacts. Lifecycle costs are minimized using this method as it is less costly to pay for the maintenance and upkeep of rehabilitated roads.

During this presentation, we will draw from our projects in other areas that have experienced dramatic climate events. After rehabilitating these roads using recycling and stabilization, these roads provide a high level of service that has stood the test of time a decade later, proving to be in good condition.   

Improving economies through transport infrastructure
Better pavement infrastructure is noted to lead to better GDP of a country and result in improved economic, social and health benefits. Roads are critical to the livelihoods of communities and it is important to safeguard them against variable climates and design them with future population and traffic increases in mind. With rehabilitated, climate-resilient roads, communities have the best chance to maintain road function and provide efficient movement of goods. With continued access to transportation helps the regional economy, which in turn helps the country.
