A STATE‐OF‐THE‐ART SOLUTION IN A RIVER INFRASTRUCTURE
The Arroyo Carrera 65 project, with an
investment of 30 million euros and an execution period of 16 months (ending in July 2018), may be one of the most important in the city, with a length
of 2.5 km and crossing the towns of Montecristo, Modelo, Prado and Boston, where major industries, universities, shopping centres and residential buildings are located.
Seeking an operation with continuous improvement and constant innovation, Mota‐Engil implemented a construction process that had never been used in
a city’s plumbing works and which consists of a rectangular Box–Culvert measuring 3.60 m by 4.00 m, using precast walls and slabs.
The implementation of these important projects rea rms Mota‐Engil Group’s presence in the Colombian market, where the company maintains its commitment to successfully face each new challenge, ensuring a high level of competitiveness and innovation.
