Rapid rehabilitation of the surface course
Once the carriageway had been precisely milled off by a WIRTGEN W 195 large milling machine, it was time to pave the new surface course. A paving team from the contractor Hangzhou Hongde Engineering Machinery Co., Ltd. used their VÖGELE SUPER 1600 L paver to do the job. Like the prior milling operation, paving was carried out in several sections, each 3.75m wide, amid flowing traffic. Closing National Highway 104 completely was not an option, since the road is so heavily trafficked.
"In this project, it was important to minimize the disruption to traffic and to complete the asphalt paving work as quickly as possible," says General Manager Long Aibing. "The VÖGELE paver did an excellent job from the word go. The performance was spot on and the surface we achieved is absolutely even and of a superb quality.”
Hangzhou Hongde Engineering Machinery Co., Ltd. opted to use the Universal Class paver from VÖGELE because it perfectly matched the company’s range of applications. Indeed, the SUPER 1600 L is a true master of asphalt paving, in smaller and larger projects alike. The excellent experience the company has had with other VÖGELE machines such as the SUPER 1880 L, as well as other WIRTGEN GROUP machines, for instance the HAMM HD 128 tandem roller, added to VÖGELE's appeal.
