Structure markings making the way
More than 26,000 heavy vehicles travel on Anchieta Highway everyday, transporting freight between São Paulo and the largest port of Latin America in Santos, Brazil.
Since the main route consists of many sharp curves, safety is an important and equally challenging issue.
The road marking material needed to be resource efficient and durable, while significantly contributing to the road's safety. Ecovias, the highway's concession company, decided to apply structured road markings based on DEGAROUTE®. Their intention was to increase the visibility during rainfall, while at the same time contributing to environmental preservation through the long service life of the marking. In 2007, structured markings were applied on 14,000 m2 of the road's surface and additional stop bars were extruded to reduce the speed of vehicles.
