Paving of concrete carriageway Case study Tauern motorway at the Wengen-Pongau junction
Passenger and freight traffic on our roads continues to increase in number and severity. High axle loads, high tyre pressures and greater dynamic loads require load-bearing and stable road pavements. Concrete road pavements are highly suitable for meeting these demands over long periods of time. Therefore, they are well suited for the new construction and renewal of motorways, federal and country roads, local bypasses, bus traffic areas, intersections and roundabouts, and cycle paths. Concrete road pavements have a long service life even under heavy use. Nevertheless, the production costs are competitive and the maintenance costs are low. This makes concrete pavements particularly economical by comparison.
