Abstract

Asphalt granulate is a valuable building material suitable for the production of asphalt mixtures. Its use in modern road building is profitable not only for environmental reasons but also because of the economic aspect of saving natural aggregates and asphalt and saving road pavement construction costs. The purpose of the cost analyses was to determine the financial benefits resulting from using the asphalt granulate in asphalt mixtures. The cost calculations concerned the basic components of asphalt mixtures and the costs of constructing the pavement structure layer for which the mixtures had been intended. The analyses covered asphalt mixtures of asphalt concrete type AC 22P with different content of asphalt granulate purchased at different prices, intended for road pavement substructure layers loaded with traffic of KR3 and KR4 categories.
