Most countries have a secondary Gravel Road network that can consist of a thousand or tens of thousands of kms. While, once gravel roads were acceptable, this is no longer the case, as population and commercial growth demand better road transport systems.   Gravel Road upgrades and improvements are a critical factor in facilitating development, as well as commercial and agricultural growth.

For more information as to how to deliver improved roads and a positive impact win-win solution, that will allow for growth and increased opportunities across all sectors including Agriculture, Education, and Health.

Gravel Roads demand frequent and expensive maintenance, the road surfaces become quickly degraded due to erosion and material loss.

Upgrading these rural gravel road networks to Asphalt has become cost prohibitive and is not financially sustainable.

Soil Solutions has the SOLUTION!

We have developed detailed Gravel Road Upgrade programmes for institutions and governments that allow for a specification, quality assurance & testing process and maintenance plan to be put into place provides a long term sustainable solution for gravel road construction and upgrades.  Contact us for more information


Soil Solutions has created a new long term sustainable solutions for Gravel Roads. The new Surfaced Road has all the same benefits as a EBS Sealed roads but has a different aesthetic look.  EBS Surfaced roads are still completely environmentally friendly and non-bitchumen based. 

EBS treated roads now available in two options.

The 6-Step Gravel Road Upgrade Process using EBS Surface Seal:

These results allow for long term sustainable solutions, as the road surface will NEVER need to be graded again.   No more imported material will be needed, as the road surface is being fully protected with the EBS Surface Seal.

For Government (Municipal and Provincial) this provides an important solution that is cost effective and will allow for a huge decrease in future maintenance of these roads.

A road properly treated with an EBS Surface Seal will have a Hard – Water Resistant Surface  — and a long term wearing course  – that will allow for continuous Access 

Provided at less than half the cost of Asphalt –   The Answer is-    Engineered Base Stabilizer ( EBS ) will:

  • Provide a hard all-weather surface
  • Provide a water resistant Surface
  • The road will be protected from erosion, material loss, cracking, rutting, corrugation and potholes
  • The road will have NO DUST

Soil Solutions and the Ondo State Government have partnered to begin improving roads in the Ondo State. Our Gravel Roads Solution has been implemented to create a lasting, cost effective solution for the Ondo State Government in Nigeria.

Benefits of EBS Surface Sealed Gravel Roads

  • Important and substantial cost savings for governments and municipalities in terms of Gravel Road Maintenance
  • After an EBS Surface Seal, these Gravel Roads will NEVER need to be Graded or Compacted Again.
  • The road will have a longer life and only requires spot maintenance every few years instead of major maintenance on a regular basis.
  • The road surface will be protected from erosion and any material loss.
  • There will be No dust and increased safety.
  • This provides a valuable solution for governments and increasing service delivery – while decreasing costs to do so.
  • This is also a perfect solution for Environmentally sensitive areas as this solution reduces Environmental Impact.


A Soil Solutions Technical Manager will advise as to the recommended application rate as this is material dependent. A site assessment will allow for the determination of the optimum application and dilution rates to be used that will maximize the cost and benefits of the EBS treatment to the Gravel Roads.


Do not worry, we can help.  We will develop a tailored solution fro the improvement of the in-situ soil as well as providing cost effective construction methodologies including our Road Recycler Machines that allow for milling of material, accurate injection of EBS Soil Stabilizer and stabilised layer works that will perform indefinetly after an EBS Surface Seal treatment resulting in a much improved road, with a longer life span with decreased maintenance.SEE RECYCLER MACHINES
