B 10/27 remediation/increasing height of the existing noise-protection wall

Description of works:

  • Removal of the existing noise barrier cladding made from ceramic protective cladding over length of 600m 
  • Concrete repair using high-pressure water jetting and sprayed concrete and applying an extensive OS DI system
  • Raising height of existing noise-protection wall and renewal of the wall cladding
  • In the upper area the rise was achieved as a curve with an inner radius of 2.15 m
  • A new facing made from aluminium panels will be attached to the concrete base, in some areas made from transparent panels
  • Noise-protection wall elements, highly absorbent on both sides, are planned in the vertical area of the increase in height.
