    Expressway to the south Despeñaperros By-pass

    ACCIONA Ingeniería carried out  the study report, the construction plans for the north and south roadways of the new Despeñaperros by-pass of the Autovía del Sur and the supervision of the works involved, giving the stretch of road geometrical characteristics in line with the category and volume of traffic carried.

    The planned section of expressway includes 2 slip roads (at Santa Elena and to the road to Aldeaquemada), 3 tunnels (2,625 meters), 6 viaducts (2,.190 meters), 1 overpass, 2 underpasses (one of them over-dimensioned to allow wildlife to pass through) and 3 retaining walls.

    The project represents advantages for the area around the Natural Park of Despeñaperros thanks to the several environmental measures introduced. Among them, we would highlight the lower vulnerability of the wildlife in the area, a higher number of crossing points for animals, the creation of a greenway along the old National IV road, the protection of archeological heritage, the cleaning and restoration or river beds and banks, and improvements in the habitat of rabbits and lynxes, etc.

    ACCIONA Ingeniería S.A. was awarded the 2013 Aqueduct of Segovia Prize for its work on this project in the Planner category.
