Project description

Client: AKTOR SA
Location: Egio
Year: 2015

Due to the high speed of concreting and to intense shrinkage, randomly distributed surface cracks were developed on the New Jersey type barriers.

Tasks description

ENKA was urgently asked to offer its services on the immediate repair of the New Jersey barriers, so that the new segment of the highway could be delivered fully operational as soon as possible. To accomplish that, rehabilitation of the New Jersey type barriers took place, on the new highway connecting Corinth to Patras. The works included the opening of the cracks and their rehabilitation by using a two component epoxy paste. In cases where the cracks extended to the full section of the barriers, a crack injection method of a two component epoxy resin was applied. Finally, the resurfacing of the barriers was done by using repair mortars.
