Although the changes to the Specification for Highway Works (MCHW 1) have defined the basic aggregate properties required, the document is still very much a national recipe-type specification; aggregate selection could be based on performance so that a successful end-product can be predicted more accurately.

Also, it has been replaced, or there is a strong lobby wishing to replace it, by other test methods in many parts of the world including America, Australia, New Zealand and, more recently, Canada. Nevertheless, the test is considered by many, including the major UK civil and military airport authorities, as an ideal method of ranking aggregates. Resistance to freeze/thaw and thermal expansion/contraction is an equally important aspect of the durability of aggregates and has promoted the German freeze/thaw (F/T) test (CEN, 1991d) to be recommended as a European Standard.

This Avis Technique is then used by highway authorities in the procurement of the material with the document being valid for three years. The introduction of the Avis Technique procedure has promoted innovation in road materials in France. In the United Kingdom, the Department of Transport (subsequently the Highways Agency) have promoted, with the assistance of TRL, a less formal five-stage assessment procedure for such materials. The five-stages in the Highways Agency Procedure for Evaluating New Materials are: • Stage 1.
