Cycle underpass Weinheim

At an underpass for cyclists and pedestrians under an S-Bahn stop in Weinheim; the asphalt pavement of the ramp was very cracked and sometimes extremely worn, such that cyclists ran the risk of slipping in wet conditions. This meant that a complete half of the underpass needed to be recoated and gritted to close the cracks and damage, improve grip and finally give the cyclist the safety they need again. After the city of Weinheim had explained the task to the contractor, they immediately turned to Triflex because they were absolutely convinced of the quality of the Triflex products. The solution was jointly developed and presented to the city. It was then implemented with the support of Triflex. The basis: Triflex Asphalt Repro.
