Cemex supplies special concrete for new terminal

Published by , Assistant Editor
World Cement,

Cemex expects to supply 21 500 m3 of Roller Compacted Concrete (RCC) to pave all of the roads for the new terminal of ALA Transportes, a division of Grupo Transportes de Monterrey (GTM), the biggest trucking company in Mexico.

Comprising 15 hectares in Nuevo Laredo, in northern Mexico, the project needed a solution that was capable of easing the daily traffic of 400 trailers, while still offering long-term savings during the lifespan of the pavement.

Cemex’s RCC solution was utilised to best meet the challenge. This Cemex product enables the paving of roads subject to heavy traffic, such as industrial parks, working yards and slow traffic lanes.

The project included the use of hydraulic concrete exclusively for the main road inside the terminal. To maximise the benefit of the product’s features, however, RCC was placed in all of the roads, providing a longer lifespan, faster opening of the road to vehicles, and reduced maintenance costs.

For the first stage of the project, Cemex delivered a comprehensive turnkey offering of 65 000 m2 of RCC, placed through a high-intensity paver, together with 50 000 t of aggregates for the coating of the hydraulic base. The second phase of the project is planned to be developed over the coming months, and Cemex expects to supply an additional 40 000 m2 of RCC and 30 000 t of aggregates.
