State has 8,486 kilometers of paved roads, of which 4,500 are state kilometers, and a fleet of more than 1.56 million vehicles.
In addition to paving and restoration, the State Government invests heavily in the maintenance of highways, bridges and drainage systems. They are more than $ 200 million per year to keep the works in traffic conditions.
In addition to the routine services of the Road Maintenance Directorate, such as gravel and pit cover, the State Agency for the Management of Enterprises (Agesul) also applies microrevelopment in some stretches, fully recovering asphalt and facilitating the movement of people and the flow of agricultural products and industrial.
Instead of just plugging the holes with the use of this technology, a high resistance coating, such as a low permeability and anti-slip mantle, composed of small mineral particles, is applied that prevents the infiltration of water into the soil and, consequently, the holes.
With the application of the microrevelopment, 130 kilometers of highways were recovered, among them stretches of the MS-450 (from km 0,0 to km 9,3), between Aquidauana and the district of Camisão; MS-162 (from km 0 to 22), in Dois Irmãos do Buriti; and MS-080 (km 54.5 to 69.9), between Corguinho-Rochedo. The cost of technology is considered low, of R $ 65 thousand per kilometer.
The information is from the director Mauro Rondon. “The quality of the service is different when the asphalt receives the micro-coating,” he explains.
