A mesh will prevent landslides from occurring on the road, traveled by cars and pedestrians
The Ministry of Public Works and Infrastructure reinforced a slope on the route that runs through Los Baños de Mula (RM T-561). The work is part of the actions of the climate change adaptation plan developed by the regional government to avoid the adverse effects of inclement weather. The action consisted of reinforcing the slope to prevent new landslides from occurring on the road, with the risk that this may pose to vehicles traveling on the road or users passing through the pedestrian walkway, sources from the Community reported.
The General Director of Highways, María Casajús, highlighted that “this action has benefited from an investment of 145,200 euros by the Regional Government” and added that “it has not only improved the safety of the road to prevent the dragging of materials on the road, but also In addition, a solution is given to a frequent problem on the road.
The general director stressed that “this journey is the gateway to one of the main tourist enclaves of the Region, which enhances its development of thermal products and complements it with its cultural, natural and rural wealth.”
The works carried out by Fomento had a regional investment amounting to 145,000 euros
The work consisted of cleaning operations in the most unstable areas and the removal of the material to proceed with the installation of a reinforcement network that will allow the wall of the slope to be consolidated. For this reason, a reinforced triple torsion mesh and an integrated volumetric geogrid were installed, anchored both at the head and at the foot for greater support, with twelve-millimeter cables arranged diagonally and horizontally.
