Reconstruction of national road pavements
Within the scope of a several-year-long project, approximately 70 sections of national roads are reconstructed every year.
The goal of reconstructing national roads is to reduce the share of road surfaces assessed as poor or very poor, increase traffic flow and travel speeds, reduce noise emissions and adverse effects on the environment as well as the cost of routine maintenance and the cost for road users. Reconstructions primarily include resurfacing, reinforcement of pavements, and reconstructions with cold in-place recycling.
Cold recycling is a process in which the existing asphalt layer is used for the reconstruction and renovation of pavements, which reduces the amount of construction waste and lowers investment costs.
Cold recycling is one of the measures of sustainable pavement management.
