he region of Antalya is being given a fresh look in time for Expo Botanik 2016. Everything is being made
brighter and more beautiful, newer and more luxurious – especially hotels and roads.
This includes the Regnum Carya Golf & Spa Resort, a
five-star oasis right on the seafront which was officially
opened last year.
The 500 m approach road to the hotel comprises a 15
cm crushed-stone base and a 10 cm asphalt base. The as-
phalt surfacing was paved a short time later.
The company Antmos Asfalt was responsible for the
works. The bulk of the company’s contracts are for ac-
cess roads, connecting roads and highways with varying
requirements – encompassing everything from pure pave-

The variation in projects meant that for economical and
efficiency reasons, the equipment had to be adaptable to
the varying needs of the various jobs. The company has
invested in three Vögele pavers as being able to meet these

width ranged between 10 and 12 m, the
paver laid two strips of 4.5 to 6 m each.
As a result, the machine had to be reposi-
tioned several times.
The “AutoSet Plus” repositioning and
transport function was a valuable aid and
guaranteed a consistent paving quality.
With this function, the paver is put into
