VALORCOL on the Hungarian road network!
COLAS Út Zrt. has been awarded a contract to develop a section of VALORCOL®, cold mix composed mainly of asphalt aggregates, as part of the government's announced construction innovation program.
The 500 m long section is located in the Transdanubia region of Hungary.
The existing pavement was used as a basis for the new roadway after in-place cement recycling.
An 8 cm layer of VALORCOL® was then applied to this substrate and covered with 4 cm of hot mix.
VALORCOL® was manufactured in place and formulated by COLAS Hungary's laboratory.
A reference section was also created with the same structure, substituting VALORCOL® with a traditional hot mix.
The entire project was completed in April 2019.
Regular checks and follow-up will be carried out over 5 years by the client to monitor and compare the behaviour of these sections.
