21 October '09 - site visit in Venlo (NL) 

 

EUPAVE organises on 21 October 2009 a technical seminar on the application of fibremix concrete for heavy traffic platforms on the A67 near Venlo (NL). This excursion will be organised together with Cement&BetonCentrum, the Dutch member of EUPAVE.

The former border station at the north side of the A67 is, by order of the regional Highway Authorities, being reconstructed to a newly designed public service station. The pavement for the parking platforms for trucks and cars will be executed in fibremix concrete and has a total surface of 16 000 m².

This is the first project in which fibremix concrete is applied on such a large scale. The contractor for the execution of the concrete pavements is BAM Betonwegen (Helmond, NL).

Through presentations and a visit to the site, this half day excursion will allow visitors to be informed on the design and execution of this project as well as on the particular characteristics of this specific concrete mixture.
