Curepe Interchange, Trinidad & Tobago

A showcase of good planning that improves the lives of citizens

In the year 2012, the National Infrastructure Development Company Limited (NIDCO) of Trinidad & Tobago undertook a traffic study, to assess the impact of the then proposed Curepe Interchange. It collected and analysed traffic volume data and made projections for the year 2040. The study, that took into account geography, community needs and sustainability, revealed that the superstructure would create several waves of relief:

Morning delays through the Curepe intersection on CRH would decrease from about 11 minutes to 19 seconds per vehicle and afternoon delays would decrease even more dramatically, from about 22 minutes to 19 seconds per vehicle

On the Southern Main Road:

  • Morning delays would decrease from 9.5 minutes, to 35 seconds per vehicle and afternoon delays would decrease from 21 minutes, to about 1 minute per vehicle

CWS100 was the material of choice for waterproofing the impressive flyover of the interchange. Its super-fast application dramatically reduced work-time and helped meet deadlines, while its lifetime waterproofing capability, ensures long-term performance without any maintenance. Its ability to withstand thermal stress is beyond the abilities of any crystalline waterproofing, while it ensures lifetime protection against chloride and sulfate ingression.
