The company had owned and run the road testing circuit, a special equipment for road testing, until 2006.

This device had three independent axles that could be loaded to as much as 130 kN. Testing circuit was 100 m high and 6 m wide.

The device was used for testing new types of roads, materials or special road equipment (e.g. railway crossing) in 1:1 scale. Its advantage was that tested roads were made by means of common technologies and machinery as in actual construction. Distribution of load of roads could be prescribed in cross section as well as according to real climatic conditions. Tests run on longtime basis - over 1.0 million of complete circuits. In the course of increasing load, there were running tests of selected attributes, such as carrying capacity, forming of deformations and surface qualities etc., according to the schedule chosen.
