The Major Maintenance, that Ballast Nedam Road Specialties executes for the Department of Waterways and Public Works, is progressing well. The project consists of two periods, a road closure with a duration of ten days and weekend closures on three routes. The road closure between the junctions Waterberg and Grijsoord (in the direction towards Utrecht) and the weekend closure on the first route, have been successfully completed. Without any incidents.
The road between the junctions Waterberg and Grijsoord (in the direction towards Utrecht) has been given a completely new asphalt coating. In addition, concrete repairs have been carried out on viaducts, replacing expansion joints and restoring guide rail. The work has been carried out completely according to plan. The road was reopened two days earlier than expected. Thanks to a thorough preparation of half a year and good coordination with the regional partners (300 organizations), the nuisance was kept to a minimum and the expected chaos did not materialize.
During the last two weekends, the A15 (between Ochten – Echteld) was closed during the night. The road has been given a new asphalt coating for three kilometres. To be able to enhance the speed limit from 120 km/hr to 130 km/hr, the acceleration lane at Ochten has also been extended.
To be able to also increase the speed limit from 120 km/hr to 130 km/hr at the A15 between Tiel West and Tiel, this section will also be adjusted. The acceleration and deceleration lane will be extended. In addition, the road will be given a new asphalt coating (with a length of three kilometres). Furthermore, various concrete repairs will be carried out on several structures and on three structures that expand over the national road the railing will be replaced.
During the final weekend closure, the asphalt coating will be replaced for over more than three kilometres, in a period of two nights. In addition, various maintenance activities will be carried out on the structures, such as replacing the guide rail and concrete repairs. This way traffic can continue to travel smoothly and safely over these routes.
