At the beginning of October, the first 11
kilometers of the work Piramides to Tularcingo in Mexico was opened to traffic. More
specifically those between km 36 and km 47 of said route.
The work, under the concession of SACYR
CONCESIONES and executed by SACYR CONSTRUCCIÓN, has marked a real
technological milestone when running with a solution of asphalting with
mixtures with high content in bitumen and crumb rubber from recycles tires
thanks to the RARX additive.
In this section, about 400 tons have been
used of RARX which has meant the use of 240 tn of
crumb rubber and rubber reuse of more than 25,000 equivalent used wheels.
This, together with the fact that said
technique allows the optimization of the pavements, allows to assure a
reduction of the carbon footprint of said work, with an absolute
environmental improvement in the whole process.
In addition, the high quality of the firm
and its high content of bitumen modified with the additive RARx, allows to have a guarantee of greater durability
of the asphalts.
The existing road needed rehabilitation…..
