Builders talk about the meeting of the raw materials crisis with the fact that no matter how much everyone wants to build, there won’t be enough of it and it won’t be fast at all: in ten years, a new quarry has not been opened in Estonia, and half of the existing ones will disappear within ten years.

About two years ago, the editors of roads and highways began to worry that aggregates would run out in the Czech Republic, and they began to encounter a lack of them for their constructions, not only in the immediate vicinity of buildings, but in general with some fractions, i.e. the sizes of crushed stone for asphalt and concrete. Because of this, the builders faced two problems: the concreters had to write down the tested concrete recipes, i.e. use a different fraction of stone, which caused two things: a complaint and an increase in prices.

In the last three years, the price of aggregates has risen by at least 30 percent, asphalt by no more than 60 percent.
