Punctual to the minute.
The pavement of runway 11/29 at Vienna International Airport was rehabilitated in April and May 2016. The works involved a large number of specialist services – due to its technical expertise and high level of professional competence, ÖBA was the employer’s first choice.
The works were coordinated between the individual subsections on a daily basis; some of the steps had to be timed down to the minute. The work was carried out in night and weekend shifts and, thanks to the ÖBA team’s high level of commitment, team spirit and flexibility, was completed on schedule and to the complete satisfaction of Vienna Airport.
Up to three drills were in use at the same time during the night shifts.© PORR

10,000m of cuts with a depth of 15 to 30cm had to be made before removing the old runway surface.
In a final step, around 9,000m of joints were sealed with a hot-applied bitumen sealing compound.© PORR
