Significant part of the route passes through tunnels
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.
The Gederiaga - Elorrio dual carriageway had a total length of 6.44 km, with separate two-lane carriageways along its entire length. In the Muntsaratz area, a new intersection connects this corridor with the N-636, giving the villages of Abadiño and Atxondo access to this new route.
A large section of the route passed through tunnels. The Gaztelua I and II tunnels both consisted of two tubes and were 594 m and 1,141 m long respectively. The artificial Gaztelua tunnel, which was 216 m long, was located between them, while the Atxondo cut-and-cover tunnel was 95 m long.
The main works included two viaducts, 865 m and 649 m long, which formed the basis for the connection of the new infrastructure with the AP-8, one of which branches into two, forming another viaduct that is 187 m long.
