Chile: Renovation and Maintenance Work on Highway Surfaces
In mid-February, on behalf of SCADA (Globalvia Group), Bitumix started maintenance work on the Aconcagua Highway, connecting Santiago to Los Vilos (located 220 km north of Santiago). The work includes traditional maintenance: sealing cracks, carrying out shallow and deep patching, overlaying asphalt, and applying a thin coating (BBTM) and cold mix asphalt on different sections of the highway. The contract—as part of SCADA’s innovative solutions for research and implementation—also involves producing a Stone Mastic Asphalt (SMA) overlay, based on the results of tests from the last maintenance contract.
This is the fourth contract of this type won by Bitumix since 2011. Work is scheduled for completion in late October 2015.
