This paper considers the prediction of skid resistance for differing types of UK thin surfacing materials in relation to mix properties such as aggregate type and size. This is based on different research projects that have been in response to meeting the needs for sustainable construction i.e. providing a safer and longer lasting pavement. The traditional UK requirement for high values of skid resistance and texture must now be viewed along with properties such as noise, fatigue, permanent deformation and rolling resistance. Using examples and case studies the paper considers the implication of combining these sometimes conflicting properties.
