Soil stabilisation is a very useful technique for road construction. To utilise the full advantage of the technique the quality control must be adequate. In this study three main groups of test methods are tested and discussed. The first group deals with methods for determination of bearing capacity e.g. complete surface compaction control, static plate load test and light drop weight tester. The second group of method deals with workability and homogeneity tests e.g. moisture condition value (MCV), core sampler and pulverisation test. The third group deals with geophysical methods e.g. spectral analysis of surface waves (SASW) and resistivity.
