All around the world, airports are being expanded and upgraded, both to cope with massive increases in passenger numbers and also to handle larger aircraft. Runways have to be rebuilt with stronger structures and surfaces to handle greater air traffic volumes as well as increased loads from larger aeroplanes. Building airport runways,chip spreader market
however, poses many challenges for construction crews. Paving quality has to be extremely high so as to maximise safety,concrete breaking machine agent while time schedules can be very strict, with only short possession time available and tough penalties for late working.
The Chicago Department of Aviation is managing one of the largest construction projects in the country at O’Hare, one of the world’s busiest airports. The O’Hare Modernisation Program (OMP) promises to upgrade the airport’s outdated layout into modern parallel runways to reduce flight delays in all weather conditions.

A partnership between Turner Construction, Acura, and Lindahl Brothers is completing runway and taxiways work, a south air traffic control tower and several other enabling projects. The bulk of the concrete paving is being completed by Acura.
The firm is an experienced concrete paving contractor but this is its first airport job. The specifications are tighter and the concrete mix is more challenging than the crews are used to. Additionally, this job requires the use of a dowel bar inserter and stringless paving job,micro surfacing contractors both of which the firm is using for the first time.
