04 Road Construction

Detailed expertise

Road construction is a special challenge due to changing and partially difficult ground and weather conditions

and the intensive use of resources. The decisive part is a perfect organisation and long experience.

Road construction projects of any size are handled by the ALPINE specialists with know-how, top-of-the-line

technology and a comprehensive portfolio.

Tunnel and channel construction

ALPINE itself can provide any tunnel and channel construction works as part of

new road constructions, decontamination and complete overhaul works. This allows

to flexibly coordinate and perfectly handle the entire construction process.

Erection of noise barriers

Noise barriers are up to 6 m in height and are made of a great variety of material

with diverse technologies. ALPINE can erect these as part of road construction projects

or subsequently integrate them in existing terrain. ALPINE offers a one-stop solution

provider for these works.

Own resources

Securing steep faces

An innovative technology is used in

‘Project Y’ and the mountain road

Trieben in securing steep faces.

Suitable geosynthetics are being used

between compacted layers of earth to

ensure a lasting stability these strongly

inclined rock faces.

ALPINE produces its own resources in its own plants and facilities in Austria and abroad.

Our own asphalt and concrete mixing plants partially further process these resources.

ALPINE‘s planning and quality control guarantees a high quality standard. These resources

guarantee independent supply for every project.

Construction of runways

ALPINE demonstrates its traditional top quality and flexibility in the construction of

runways and traffic areas on airports too. Even highly specialized tasks are solved through

a combination of know-how and innovations. Some of our references are the airport

Vienna-Schwechat (Austria) and the airport Podgorica (Montenegro).


A total of 25,000 m2 of steep faces

with a height of up to nine metres were

constructed in Trieben. It was the first

time that this special technology has

been used in Austria to this extent:

308,000 m2 of geosynthetic grids and

186,000 m3 of fill material. The dams’

foundation was constructed with

foundation plates and the faces were

secured with shotcrete.

ALPINE is a one-stop solution provider

A wide range of services is required in every road construction project. Diverse tasks must be executed and coordinated perfectly.

ALPINE performs all tasks as a one-stop solution provider. The company has the right experts and technologies from

road construction works to track constructions, bridges, tunnels and foundation engineering.

ALPINE is a leading turnkey supplier not only because of its ability to handle even the most complex tasks and its years of

experience but also because of its use of innovations like ‘geosynthetic reinforced earth’.

Planning, development

and financing

ALPINE is an internationally acting construction company. It not only

provides construction services but an extensive range of services in

project development, planning and financing.

PPP (Private Public Partnership) and BOT (Build, Operate and Transfer)

models increasingly gain importance. ALPINE offers its partners

interesting and economical turnkey solutions, covering the entire

value-added chain from development to utilization of a project.

Project Y, PPP Eastern Region

Package 1

The first Austrian PPP (Public Private

Partnership) motorway project

included the construction of a new

A5 section between Eibesbrunn and

Schrick (from Vienna toward Czech

Republic) and Vienna’s North-East ring

with the dual carriageways S1 and S2.

ALPINE is a leading member in the Bonaventura

syndicate (44.4% shares).

The franchised motorway section will

be operated for 30 years by a company

specifically founded for this purpose

and ALPINE is a member of it too.

It is named ‘Project Y’ as the course of

the roads resembles the letter ‘Y’.

ALPINE develops a GPS reference system with

a max. deviation of 2 cm.


The largest construction site in Central Europe employs 1,300 workers.

12,000 plans are implemented by an additional 130 employees..

About 10 million cubic metres of earth moving.

Pavement construction: 400,000 tons of asphalt, 1,400,000 m2 concrete road

surface (25 cm strong) and a cement-reinforced base course (20 cm strong).

Noise control measurements: Noise barriers and steep faces made of geoplastic

reinforced earth with the visible side made of half rock gabions.

The Tradenberg tunnel required 1.4 km of mining.

All construction elements were designed by the architect Martin Wakonig.



Length of road: 51 km

Junctions: 11

Bridges: 76

Tunnels: 4 with a total length of 7.4 km

Noise control measurements: 81 km

Motorway A1 Poland

New development

Poland is the sixth largest county of

the European Union (measured by area

and population) and has engaged in an

ambitious infrastructure programme.

About 1,000 km of new motorways

are to be constructed by 2012 for the

European Soccer Championship hosted

with the Ukraine. ALPINE handles one

of the most southern sections with

18.33 km in length. It leads from the

village Świerklany south of Katowitz to

Gorzyczki near the Polish-Czech border.

This section is a part of the A1 motorway.

Once completed it will provide a

non-stop motorway connection between

the city of Danzig with Poland’s

southern neighbour countries.

Geotextiles, geogrids and ‘geosynthetic

reinforced earth’ compensate the strong

sinkages along the road.


A total of nearly 2 million m² of geotextile will be used. They serve to secure

the mining shafts kept open below parts of the roadway.

In total about 7 million m³ of material will be moved.

The construction of a 380 m long cable-stayed bridge will demand

expertise know-how.

Prior to construction more than 1,000 grenades and other relics from the war

had to be disarmed and removed from the ground.

Mountain road B114 Trieben-Sunk BYPASS

The street B114 Triebener Strasse,

leading from the city of Trieben to

the city of Judenburg via the region

Hohentauern, is a topographically

difficult north-south axis and connects

the valleys Paltental and Liesingtal

in the north with the valley Murtal in

the south. Due to the costly maintenance

of the existing road on the

eastern slope of the Triebenbachtal

it was decided to build a new road on

the western slope. The ‘geosynthetic

reinforced earth’ system was used to

construct the extremely steep dams of

the new roadway. This contract comprises

additionally 2 bridges, retaining

walls as well as anchor and shotcrete

walls as slope securing and rock-face

sealing measures.

Erection of ‘flexible’ geosynthetic

reinforced dams to compensate up to 3 cm

of annual slope movement.


Dam construction with an angle of up to 60° in a terrain with up to 100% slope

Maximum dam height of 26.00 m

Road Construction

Motorway section Ningbo

Contract YJECC1

Ningbo is at the east coast in the

province of Zhejiang, ca. 350 km south

of Shanghai. In essence this 42.25 km

long motorway project serves to connect

the transit harbour Ningbo and


the industrial zones of the province

Zhejiang. From 2002 to 2010 Ningbo‘s

harbour will be developed into one of

the most important transit container


ALPINE constructs a 4-lane motorway with a

total length of 42 km in the Shanghai-Ningbo

region – China’s new economic centre.

ALPINE performs these main tasks: Earthwork, soil conditioning measurements,

bridge constructions, underbridges, bored piles and tunnels.

The construction includes 53 bridges (7.2 km), 10 duct tunnels (7.3 km)

and 79 underbridges for pedestrian and tractors.

Additionally the construction includes all electric and mechanical facilities,

operational building and the entire control and toll system.

The traffic in this province increases annually by about 12%.



Construction period: 2002 – 2006

Length of road: 42 km

Excavation: 2.39 million m³

Dam fill: 3.63 million m³

Asphalt area: 766,520 m²

Prefabricated beams: 7,028

Order value: € 165,0 million

Airport Vienna-Schwechat

Extension of the north-eastern apron / Phase 2B

Phase 2B is one of many construction

stages at the airport Schwechat

executed by ALPINE that requires

uncommon expert knowledge.

The construction is designed in general

to high area and point loads and aeroplanes.

This construction section is in

the airport‘s so-called ‘Airside Zone’.



A 3,000 m long ICAO compliant security

fence was constructed around the

construction site prior to beginning

of the actual construction. This made

the otherwise common passenger and

security checks unnecessary. It would

have been impossible to logistically

and timely manage the high number

of vehicles and suppliers – up to 350

persons and vehicles at the same time.

This type of construction with more than

2.10 m depth is very different from the usual

road construction.

These pipes have a diameter of 3 metres. Each pipe must be delivered with a heavygoods

vehicle. Each pipe weighs 20 tons - and has a wall thickness of 30 cm.

The construction period at the airport had to be kept as short as possible as it

restricted air traffic. A huge cubature had to be moved. Thus the concrete and

asphalt was manufactured directly at the airport.
