The article deals with pavement reconstruction methods. Hot and cold recycling technologies are compared. Such technologies ensure significant savings compared to complete reconstruction and placement of additional layers on top of the existing pavement.
They also allow restoring road pavements according to high quality standards, within the shortest time possible and with minimum impact on the pavement. Examples of implemented pavement reconstruction projects using recycling are given.
