Winter road maintenance: optimising the storage of spreading materials

In order to meet the high demands on winter road maintenance in the coming years, spreading material storage is to be made more effective and economical. On behalf of the Federal Highway Research Institute (BASt), the current conditions were investigated and optimisation proposals for de-icing salt storage were developed. Future new and replacement facilities are to be designed for greater efficiency and enable more cost-effective operation.
