UK motorists want a full-size spare tyre
UK motorists want a full-size spare tyre

Car review website Carbuyer.co.uk says UK motorists have given space saver spare wheels and puncture repair kits an “overwhelming thumbs down”. When it asked a sample group of more than a thousand motorists which modern car features annoy them most, two out of three responded that the lack of a full-size spare tyre was their biggest gripe.

Qantas flight turns back after tyre explodes midair
Qantas flight turns back after tyre explodes midair
(CNN) — A Qantas Airways flight in Australia was forced to turn back after a tire on the plane exploded midair shortly after takeoff.
The plane was heading from Brisbane to the eastern city of Mackay on Sunday when a nitrogen-filled tire exploded, damaging part of the wing, according to CNN affiliate Seven News.
The jet was forced to burn fuel and circle above Queensland's eastern Sunshine Coast for an hour and a half before touching down back in Brisbane. All 76 passengers on board were safe.
Passengers told Seven News they heard a big bang, and that the pilot announced it was a tire explosion.
Airport crew on the ground confirmed the issue.
According to CNN affiliate Nine News, an operator on the runway reported seeing "rubber all down the left-hand side" and found "a large piece" of shredded tire.
All passengers were able to get on another plane to their destination later on Sunday. Qantas said it was not an emergency landing and that they are investigating the explosion, Seven News reported.

Old tyres wheeled out for resurfacing motorways

 

About 40 million tyres are produced in Britain each year, 500,000 of which are thought to end up in landfill sites overseas

Old tyres will be used to resurface motorways under plans designed to stop them being sent to landfill sites overseas.

A new asphalt has been created using waste rubber as part of a trial funded by state-owned Highways England.

The surface has been laid on part of the M1 near Leicester to test its long-term durability. If successful, it could be used on motorways across England.

There are concerns over how best to deal with the 40 million tyres produced in Britain each year. Under European Union rules they cannot be sent to landfill, so the majority are recycled and used in the manufacture and construction of facilities such as football pitches.

However, it is believed that as many as 500,000 a year are shipped out of the UK to huge landfill sites in the Middle East and Asia. More than seven million tyres are understood to have been dumped at one landfill site in Kuwait.

The new road surface has been developed by Tarmac, the British building materials company. In a first for this country, it has developed asphalt technology that recycles tyres by adding granulated rubber to the mix. It is estimated that up to 750 waste tyres could be used in every kilometre of road surfaced with the new material, depending on the thickness of the top layer.

A section of the southbound M1 between junctions 23 and 22 has been laid with the surface.

About £180,000 has been invested in the trial through Highways England’s £150 million innovation fund.

Paul Fleetham, the managing director of Tarmac, said: “As a previously overlooked waste stream, used tyres offer a significant opportunity to unlock the benefits of a circular economy.”

Martin Bolt, Highways England’s corporate group leader, said: “The economic and environmental potential of this new asphalt is significant.”
