California Bearing Ratio (CBR) testing was required on a site in Cornwall to enable a new road to be designed. In this photograph the formation has been excavated and rolled in preparation for the sub base. The CBR testing enabled the client, a large minerals processing company, to design a road to using the minimum of stone hardcore.
