Roller Compacted Concrete in Gabon

Roller Compacted Concrete: a new technique developed by Colas in Gabon

This classic technique - modernized and recently introduced into Gabon – enables us to satisfy clients who prefer concrete-based solutions. 

After 2,400 m2 test area,  a 3,900 m2 container storage platform was then built, devised in conjunction with the CST's Pavement Design Department,

The quality of the finish is very close to that obtained with a "classic" concrete.

This technique is a perfect example of a low-cost solution that abides by pavement design rules. 

Use of this process will continue to expand with a new site, 240,000 m2 platform, in the coming months.
