Pavement reconstruction on the M7
In the public tender conducted by road operator Magyar Közút, Colas Út was tasked with renovating the pavement of the M7 motorway’s right carriageway between chainages 90+398 and 110+700. The firm secured the job back in 2017 with a bid of 3.355 billion forints, and the works have already been kicked off last year.

As part of the project, we are to profile and reinforce the wearing course in the passing- and emergency lanes. Meanwhile, we are also reinforcing the pavement in the driving lane using cold remix technology with materials equivalent to C12 concrete. Our duties also cover the necessary interventions involving the engineering structures on the section, such as the replacement of guardrails or pier-protection. At some spots, we must also replace the complete pavement structure before remixing, and our mixing plant in Kéthely is providing the necessary hotmix. We have 210 days to wrap up the project, from which we used up 84 days last year – this was enough to complete 8 kilometres of the entire stretch in first-rate quality. In 2019, we intend to carry on with the renovation job in two phases, covering 6 kilometres in the spring, and a similar length in the autumn.
