“Closing a runway for renovation means less air traffic, and less traffic means less revenue. Therefore, the airport authorities requested a solution that is fast and easy to apply and provides adequate protection against reflective cracking for the entire servicelife of the pavement.”
“Budimex proposed to use Mesh Track® for the project, as they decided it was the most reliable protection against reflective cracking in the long-run. They also convinced the Szczecin-Goleniów airport to reinforce the entire length of the runway instead of just the joints. Increasing the total m² of reinforcement from 35.000 m² to 123.000 m²."
“We would have never been able to carry out the design if it wasn’t for the technical support by Bekaert”, Budimex stated. The client initially did not agree to increase the reinforcement. The calculations Bekaert provided convinced the customer that this was the best proposal, for the best outcome.”
