New Road Paving Makes High Speed Safe
Superspeedways from coast to coast are visioned following the recent discovery in a Boston, Mass., pavement testing laboratory of a new type of non-skid, resilient asphalt paving. It will permit motor cars to travel at speeds up to 100 miles an hour, the laboratory’s engineers say. Walled-in traffic lanes, with block signals, would permit such speeds in safety. Hundreds of different kinds of pavement were tested, and Sir Malcolm Campbell, world’s speed king was consulted during the tests.
