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.
Prior to the construction phase, more than 50,000 vehicles used to cross the interchange every day. The clearance between the existing viaduct and the road was just 4.5 metres, which meant that the heaviest goods vehicles had to divert from the Bruce Highway.
The project involved construction of a new and higher viaduct over the highway, with features that included a pedestrian route and a cycle lane, the extension and straightening of the four entry and exit ramps, upgrading the junctions with local roads, and construction of pedestrian and cyclist installations. Construction of the viaduct was completed in 2015.
