FCC will build two sections of the Ferrol-Villalba Divided Highway

The Xunta de Galicia, through the Sociedad Pública de Inversiones de Galicia, S.A. (SPI), part of the Ministry of the Economy and the Treasury, has awarded FCC a contract to build two contiguous sections of the Ferrol-Villalba Divided Highway.

The Igrexafeita-Penameda section, valued at 14.2 million euros, measures 4.9 km, long and includes the execution of a viaduct with seven spans as well as embankments and site clearings up to 30 meters high.

The other section, Penameda-Espiñadero, measuring 3.7 km long, valued at 18.5 million euros, calls for the construction of two viaducts with 12 and 7 spans, respectively, double platforms and maximum pile heights of 40 m. The heights of the embankments and site clearings are similar to those mentioned above, partially in granite.

The execution of both sections provides economics of scale and better overall equilibrium in land movement.
