Researchers from Singapore have developed a new form of flexible precast concrete that promises to create more durable and slip-resistant road surfaces while also cutting construction times by as much as a half.

The innovative concrete developed by researchers from Singapore’s Nanyang Technological University is more flexible than conventional forms of the material, making it less brittle and permitting its use in the production of slimmer precast pavement slabs that are much easier for builders to install. “We developed a new type of concrete that can greatly…
