Economical road rehabilitation on the A3 near Emmerich

Oevermann realises pavement renewal in cooperation with G-S Straßenbau and EUROVIA within the shortest possible time

The joint venture "A3 Emmerich Ost" was commissioned by the Rhineland branch of Autobahn GmbH with the rehabilitation of the A3 between the Emmerich-Ost junction and the border to the Netherlands in both directions of travel. The renewal of the asphalt surface consisting of surface and binder course was carried out on a total of 70,000 square metres under full closure on 13 to 19 September in the direction of Oberhausen with 8 km and from 17 to 24 October 2022 in the direction of the Netherlands with 10 km - a logistically challenging task that was optimally solved in close cooperation.

Economical asphalting method

The paving was carried out using the compact asphalt construction method, the so-called InLine Pave method. Here, the two-layer asphalt structure consisting of asphalt binder and surface course is produced "hot on hot" in a single operation. The process offers many advantages, such as considerable time and cost savings and a longer service life for the roads, and is therefore highly cost-effective for the client.

Trouble-free operation thanks to accurate planning and coordination of construction sequences

The large quantities of material removal and installation posed special challenges for the logistics. The articulated vehicles had to be organised and scheduled in shift systems in order to ensure continuity and thus smooth operations. The employees of Oevermann Verkehrswegebau GmbH and G-S Straßenbau GmbH also worked in shifts, as the asphalt paving was carried out for up to 70 hours at a time. Thanks to the perfectly timed processes and the good cooperation between all project participants, the project of this particular magnitude was completed safely and economically within the specified deadlines and to the complete satisfaction of the client.
