Yellow is the colour

24 April 2008

Cologne-Based Contractor Von Der Wettern has Used a Vögele Super 800 to lay yellow coloured asphalt along cycle paths in the city's Rheingarten Park.

The job was divided into several sections separated by stairs and paved areas. Working along the park's narrow paths the 1,1 m wide Super 800 used its ECO Mode, which reduces noise and fuel consumption during operation. Asphalt for the 2,5 to 3,2m wide paths was laid in a thickness of 20 to 40 mm, and Von der Wettern's team placed 60 tonnes of mix on 900 m2 in just half a day.
