IN GIBRALTAR
THE “GIBRALTAR AIRPORT AND FRONTIER ACCESS ROAD” WORK WILL IMPROVE ACCESS FROM SPAIN
TO GIBRALTAR.
Mota‐Engil Engenharia e Construção,  nished the operation in its  rst contract in Gibraltar,
in this case a Special Foundations work.
Mota‐Engil Engenharia e Construção, through its branch in Spain,  nished the operation in its  rst contract
in Gibraltar, in this case a Special Foundations work.
The work, entitled “Gibraltar Airport and Frontier Access Road”, had the Government of Gibraltar as its  nal customer. It should be noted that access to Gibraltar from Spain happened by crossing the airport’s runway and, after the  nal works are executed, that need is expected to change. Four curtains with secant piles with diameters of 800 and 1,200 mm at maximum depths of
20 metres were developed for the future tunnel accessing the airport.
This was a work with a high level of technical demand, since the proximity
to the airport, the adverse geological context and the proximity to the sea are characteristics that increase the challenge. The work was executed with two pile devices, working 24 hours a day between the months of May and August of 2017.
The contract included the execution of 7,145 metres of piles, also requiring the placement of over 8,000 cubic metres of concrete.
