PMB gains ground in Norway

As a result of the growing Norwegian road construction market, Nynas has decided to further invest in upgrading the Drammen depot, situated south west of Oslo.

In addition to increased storage capacity, a new PMB plant will also be built.

“By investing in a PMB plant in Drammen, we’ll be moving closer to the market and can continue to offer a reliable supply of our polymer-modified products. We’ll also avoid the deliveries by road tanker from Sweden we used to depend on, thus reducing CO2 emissions,” says Kjell Arne Juul, Managing Director, Nynas AS.

Sätaröd-Vä, Sweden

European route 22 (E22) is no less than 5,320 km long, from Holyhead in the UK via the Netherlands, Germany, Sweden and Latvia to Ishim in Russia. The part of the E22 that runs through Sweden plays a major role for the country’s southern region, not least because of the link to the Copenhagen area. The problem is that the road is very busy and accident-prone, and is also close to residential areas that are affected by noise.

The Rotebro Link, Sweden

County road 267 in northern Stockholm is an important, busy link between the E4 and the E18. To improve the traffic flow on this section, the contractor Svevia has been hired by the Swedish Transport Administration to widen a 6 km section from one to two lanes in each direction.

Punt Val Mulinaun, Switzerland

High-quality waterproofing of a bridge is generally carried out using mastic asphalt. This is all the more true if there are increased stresses due to climatic conditions or traffic loads. One example is the Punt-Val-Mulinaun arch bridge on the Oberalpstrasse H19 in Graubünden, Switzerland.
