CEMEX, S.A.B. de C.V. (“CEMEX”) (NYSE: CX) announced today that it supplied several solutions—including water permeable and air-entrained concrete—for the rehabilitation of sections of the A1 and A2 Motorways, two major federal highways in Germany.
For the renovation of approximately 6 kilometers of the A1 Motorway near to Bremen, northwestern Germany, CEMEX supplied almost 1,000 cubic meters of Pervia© a special concrete mix, enabling the construction of a water permeable concrete layer under this highway’s new concrete pavement. In addition, CEMEX and a supply partner delivered over 4,000 cubic meters of air-entrained concrete to replace sections of the A1 Motorway’s pavement.
For the A2 Motorway, the German Federal Government commissioned the reconstruction of both carriageways on one of the busiest sections of this highway, the east-west axis.

CEMEX supplied approximately 11,800 tons of cement for road paving through a mobile mixing plant located near the construction site.
