The machines have been carrying out soil compaction for a key section of the 354km Purvanchal Expressway, India’s longest road construction project. The soil work is being completed by Ms Regal Enterprises, a subcontractor of Ms GR Infra.
Machine comfort has helped the operators remain productive throughout long shifts, while high vibration performance has allowed work to be completed in fewer passes. The compactors were successful in the application so Ammann has since delivered additional units.
Once completed, the Purvanchal Expressway will provide easy access to the national capital of New Delhi via the 302km Lucknow-Agra Expressway and the 165km Agra-Greater Noida Yamuna Expressway. In addition, the Purvanchal Expressway will provide uninterrupted connectivity to nine districts: Lucknow, Ghazipur, Amethi, Azamgarh, Faizabad, Barabanki, Mau, Ambedkar Nagar and Sultanpur.
