Located in front of the famous Rogers Stadium, home to the Blue Jays Baseball Team, and the CN Tower, the world’s tallest building for 34 years, the Gardiner Expressway is the main route in an out of downtown Toronto.
Toronto City had been looking for a pothole repair product that would outperform the current methods used after a number of failed installations – the previous repair lasting only 2 weeks.
The expressway regularly surpasses traffic volumes of over 110,000 each day, which meant the chosen pothole repair product would need to withstand heavy and constant trafficking and keep disruption to motorists as minimal as possible. After careful research, Toronto City trialled world renowned UltraCrete Instant Road Repair® for the repair. The trial was so successful that Instant Road Repair is now the chosen repair method for the Gardiner Expressway.
UltraCrete Instant Road Repair® was installed in December 2015 on West Bound FGGE Lane 3 at the Spadina Off Ramp in the travel portion of the right wheel rut with great success.
