Achieved industrial base

In 1985, TREV-2 had soil reserves at Valgejõe and Huntaugu adjacent to the sections of the Tallinn-Narva highway that was undergoing reconstruction. Raudoja reserves were used for construction work on the Piibe highway. Tammemäe quarry and Kõrnumäe quarry situated near Tõdva were in usage; both were situated adjacent to the Kanama intersection. The gravel pit was situated near Ruila. The intermediate storage facilities for crushed stone were situated at Koeralooga adjacent to the Jägala intersection and next to the Tallinn-Tartu highway 30-kilometre marker. In 1989, sand was extracted from the Huntaugu, Kuusalu, Vahelaane, Harku and Tammemäe quarries.

In 1986, the projects for the Kalajärve and Kuusalu quarries next to the Tallinn-Narva highway were finished.

By 1989, the Pärnu mnt 463 plot incorporated the following finished buildings and facilities:

  • repair workshop
  • boiler plant
  • warehouse
  • transformer substation
  • cleaning equipment and devices
  • utility networks
  • 3-storey residential buildings and garages for cars next to Külvi Street.

New quality in road construction

Installation of concrete shoulder with the Vari-Former construction vehicle, 1982. In 1982, Peeter Vilipuu became the manager of TREV-2. Gunnar Laev continued working as Chief Engineer until 1991. The first period of office of Mr Vilipuu (1982-1991) oversaw large-scale work on all three major highways and the Tallinn ring road, which was rendered possible thanks to the enterprising spirit of the company upon the acquisition of modern and powerful equipment.

In 1982, the modern paving machine Titan with a width of 12 metres was acquired by the Estonian SSR in relation to the construction work of Muuga Harbour and largely thanks to the initiative of Gunnar Laev.

In 1981, the Vari-Former construction vehicle for installing concrete shoulders was purchased from an exhibition in Moscow. In order to ensure a higher work quality, a concrete shoulder was installed at the edge of the road before laying the asphalt cover. Resting on the shoulder, the paver ensured a stable vertical and horizontal profile for the cover. A working group for concrete work was established, comprising the Vari-Former UF-11, MTZ tractor, three concrete mixer trucks C-92-1, and a hauling vehicle. After three years, the new technology was extensively used by the company.

In the 1980s, a new road-profiling vehicle was put into service. The technology of the vehicle originated from the United States, from the so-called CMI set. A high-quality base was prepared for the Titan paver thanks to the vehicle produced in the Soviet Union under licence. The properties of the vehicle included an automatic control function.
