I think it's provide for surface crack.

What is wielded wire mesh?

Anur said: (Jul 6, 2016)  
Yap, it is right. It is provided to reduce the crack due to temperature fluctuation.

It so interesting. I have got a lot of information from all. Thanks a lot.

Reinforcement is also provided in longitudinal and transversely at contraction and expansion joint.

Why not use RCC work in road pavement?

Please tell me.

Yes, it is provided in the form of welded wire mesh for avoiding the slipping failure of the reinforcement or simply called shear failure.

@Niraj.

Because the road has not bending stress and diagonal stress.

Here it is for Cement Concrete Slab not for Reinforced cement concrete slab.

Isn't welding of rebar reduces its strength? Usually in rigid pavement meshes are tied up.

Please correct me, if I am wrong.
