Then the excavation and casting of the Drytech waterproof concrete slab was carried out, resting on the bulkheads and prepared with the DRYset crack control elements. The whole operation took place in just three days, at the end of which the track was restored.
The procedure was therefore repeated on the other track. After another three days the line returned to full capacity, with both tracks open.
The excavation was then carried out under the slab, the casting of the platform floor of the underpass and finally the lining casting, directly against the micropiles.
When the concrete matured, joints, holes and programmed cracks were injected with DRYflex resin which, expanding, sealed them by pressure.
Drytech Engineering provided advice on aspects relating to waterproofing, collaborating with the structural engineer already in the design phase of the underpass.
