Cemex provides concrete for highway project in Germany
Published by Rebecca Bowden,
Cemex has supplied several solutions, including water permeable and air-entrained concrete, for the rehabilitation of two major federal highways in Germany.
Cemex supplied almost 1000 m3 of Pervia®, a special concrete mix, for the renovation of approximately 6 km of the A1 Motorway near to Bremen, enabling the construction of a water-permeable concrete layer under this highway’s new concrete pavement. Additionally, Cemex and a supply partner delivered over 4000 m3 of air-entrained concrete to replace sections of the A1 Motorway’s pavement.
For the A2 Motorway, the German Federal Government commissioned the reconstruction of both carriageways on one of the busiest sections of this highway, the east-west axis. Located 45 km southwest of Berlin’s city center, this section comprises six lanes of over 5 km each. Cemex supplied approximately 11 800 t of cement for road paving through a mobile mixing plant located near the construction site.
“Thanks to our extensive portfolio of high-quality building materials and solutions, we are able to improve connectivity between the communities where we operate,” said Lutz Petersen, Regional Manager Ready-Mix Northwest, Cemex Germany. “At Cemex, we go the extra mile to best serve our customers’ needs, taking pride in our participation in major infrastructure projects such as the renovation of the A1 and A2 Motorways.”
