Istanbul’s Metrobus line connecting Europe and Eurasia faced persistent issues due to heavy axle loads and temperature-related wear. The “White Road project”, spanning 112 km with two lanes in each direction, aimed to replace asphalt with an overlay of synthetic FRC to enhance load capacity and road lifespan.

The use of traditional reinforcement was impractical due to frequent Metrobus traffic, so synthetic fibres were considered a perfect alternative of reinforcement, providing the main advantages.

The ‘White Road’ project is a major milestone in Istanbul’s transportation, showcasing FRC’s benefits in durability, efficiency, and sustainability.
