Saflex O.A.® on the New coastal highway in La Réunion

As part of the new coastal highway in La Reunion, the MT2 contract of the Possession Interchange called for a method to ensure quick paced waterproofing layers on bridge decks. GTOI’s Saflex OA® process was selected.

Four decks were treated.

The Laboratory at Colas Madagascar studied the asphalt mix design and performed rutting tests.

A precise survey was carried out on the decks and an off-site test section was built to validate the technique and define the resources required.

The work went smoothly, much to the customer’s satisfaction. This was the first batch of asphalt mix applied on this exception project.
