Asphalting with loose chippings: are there no alternatives?

DP Member of Parliament André Bauler has heard that a considerable amount of vehicles in the vicinity of Koetschette have been damaged after the renewal of a road. He therefore asked the minister in charge whether there were no alternatives to loose chippings on the occasion of a road renewal by the P&Ch in order to prevent any resulting damage.

« Il me revient que suite aux travaux de route sur le CR308 entre Koetschette et Grevels, qui a été goudronné à l’aide de gravillon (« Rollsplitt »), de nombreux dégâts auraient été constatés par les riverains, tels que des fenêtres de voitures et de tracteurs cassées ainsi que des bosses dans bon nombre de véhicules.

Dans ce cadre j’aimerais poser les questions suivantes à Monsieur le Ministre de la Mobilité et des Travaux publics :

  • L’Administration des ponts et chaussées a-t-elle reçu des réclamations à cet égard ? Dans l’affirmative, combien de réclamations ont été recensées ?
  • Pour quelles raisons le goudronnage à l’aide de gravillon est-il toujours employé ? N’existe-t-il pas d’alternative à cette technique ?
  • Le gravillon est-il utilisé pour tous les chantiers de ce genre ? Quels sont les paramètres déterminant l’usage de gravillon lors de travaux de route ? »

In July 2021, a company recalled its medical respirators worldwide. However, this recall was only announced in Luxembourg at the end of October. DP MP Gusty Graas asked the Minister of Health who is responsible for communicating with those affected in such a situation, why the information was not announced in time and whether procedures might need to be adjusted.
