Minister of Transport and Communications Anne Berner visited once again Veekmas Ltd. This time Minister Berner and Member of Parliament Hannu Hoskonen observed how gravel road rehabilitation is made correctly and cost-effectively. First in the demonstration the central ridge was cut away. The second step was to recover gravel material back to the road from the ditch bank. The final part of the demonstration included shaping the road surface with correct inclinations in both directions. The Minister was further convinced how significant a motor grader is in gravel road rehabilitation and maintenance.
Veekmas Svenska AB moves to own new premises in Bålsta. The new building is located by the side of highway E18 less than 50 km from Stockholm.
