The project has a total length of 10.19 kilometers
INDUSTRY, INNOVATION AND INFRASTRUCTURE
Build resilient infrastructure, promote sustainable industrialization and foster innovation
Economic growth, social advancement and action against the climate emergency depend largely on investment in infrastructure, sustainable industrial development and technological progress. Today, about 1 billion people live more than 2 km from a roadway, 940 million live without electricity, and 663 million lack improved drinking water sources.
ACCIONA participates in the entire infrastructure construction value chain, from the identification of opportunity, design and execution, to the operation and maintenance of the constructed works, using the most advanced and innovative techniques.
Performance quality and safety are two of the criteria that maximize the company's value proposal in the development of large infrastructure projects and that differentiate it from other competitors in the construction field.
- Location: El Salvador
- Contract type: Design
- Infrastructure: The project has a total length of 10.19 kilometers and consists of carrying out the adaptation of 2.97 kilometers, including the design of two interchangers for Segment 3; and the expansion of 7.22 kilometers of current highway from 2 lanes to 4 lanes (2 lanes in each direction), including the design of interchanges, returns and vehicular crossings. The project included, among others, the design of the following structures:

INNOVATION AND SUSTAINABILITY
- Environmental and Social Impact Study carried out taking into consideration the IFC Environmental and Social Sustainability Performance Standards of the World Bank Group, the application of the Gender Policy of the MCC (Millenium Chalenge Corporation), and incorporating the strategies and recommendations established in the Strategic Environmental Assessment of the Coastal-Marine Zone of El Salvador. The study also included the analysis of alternatives, a baseline survey, a risk study, an environmental and social management program, validation and complementation of the sectoral issues of the Strategic Resettlement Action Plan, analysis of the problem of human trafficking. , study of non-motorized traffic (non-motorized transport and pedestrian traffic), diagnosis of gender gaps, establishment of a system of active participation of the communities within the area of social influence of the project, carrying out four public consultations, communication plan and plan against HIV AIDS. This type of studies were carried out for the first time in a highway design in El Salvador.
- For the first time in El Salvador, it was considered to raise en existing bridge 1.5 meters high to protect it against the effects of climate change.
