It’s easy to take roads for granted, but good roads are vital for communities all around the world. In Santa Elena, Holcim Ecuador helped build an 8km road that is a game-changer for local communities.
Material choice is not just about the construction project, but about future benefits. The cement used for this road in Ecuador, Holcim MH Base Road, was a great solution to match the project requirements and reduce future maintenance costs. The project was about transforming a dirt road into a connective infrastructure to link the communities of Chanduy and Tugaduaja and help trade to develop. The project has enabled local communities to have a safer and faster trading route, and save vehicle maintenance for years to come.
