Repair and rehabilitation
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.
ACCIONA in Joint Venture was awarded the contract for the repair and rehabilitation of the Fitzroy Regional road network. As a result of monsoonal rain and numerous tropical cyclones across some areas of Queensland, the Fitzroy regional road network sustained an unprecedented level of damage between January 2010 and April 2010, which was further exacerbated by the 2011 flooding throughout Queensland.
Some of the actions that have been undertaken are: numerous excavations and earthworks, protection of the drainage works with the implementation of ditches, pipes and chests, creation of sub-bases, previously removing the pavement and damaged soil, expansion of the road and works in both embankments and cuttings.
It has also undertaken operations with soil-cement stabilization, bituminous irrigation, and implemented signals and road markings, without forgetting the environmental integration of all actions.
