Specialists of the company “Altcom” Road Construction” used a new technology during construction of bypassing road around the stadium “Donbas Arena”. This was told be Head of Building Department #1 Alexander Valuykin.
“This road is constructed of waste dumps from Felix Kon’s mine. Burnt rocks of slagheap with cement strengthening were used for construction in Donetsk region for the first time. We ecycled about 350,000 cubic meters of waste dumps,” - Alexander Valuykin said.
He also noted that highway 5 km in length connects Mir Avenue and Kyiv Avenue: “This section is difficult – it goes through beams with unsuitable soils, for ground stabilization we used geosynthetic materials and gabion wall mounting technologies. Furthermore, in frames of construction, an overpass 200 meters in length was built”.
According to Alexander Valuykin, it is the final stage of construction. “Works haven’t been completed, we are laying an upper cover, mounting light systems, building sidewalks and barrier fence, marking roads” – said Head of BD-1 of LLC “Altcom” Road Construction”.
