USE OF AN ELECTRONICALLY CONTROLLED, TRACKED, GUSSASPHALT LAYING TRAIN DURING THE RECONSTRUCTION OF A SECTION OF MOTORWAY IN BAVARIA

One machine, which was developed especially for laying gussasphalt, has four tracked units carrying a frame which may be hydraulically raised and lowered, and may be electronically positioned by means of guiding sensors. Widths of material varying from 5 to 15.25 m can be laid. A special roller was developed for grooving the material after it had been laid; this also runs on tracks and is controlled electronically. Both machines came up to expectations on a motorway construction site; advantages include the fact that they are not rail-bound, and that they can be used on cement-stabilized gravel. /TRRL/
