Sacyr has finished the expansion works for the Turia Highway (Autovía del Turia), which are part of the second phase of the concession agreement of highways CV-35 and CV-50, in which the concession society has invested 35 million euros.
The expansion of CV-35 has consisted of two actions: the construction of a 6.5 km third two-way lane between Pobla de Vallbona and Llíria (standing at kilometers 19.7 and 25 respectively) and the duplication of a 15.4 km stretch of the road that connects Casinos and Losa del Obispo (standing at kilometers 36.8 and 52 respectively).
These works improve the connectivity in Valencia and its metropolitan area with the inner regions of Rincón de Ademuz and Los Serranos, with a highway with great road capacity that reduces commute times and improves road safety.
In the framework of this project, other extension works have been done on several underpasses as well as dredging works to adapt them to the new platform.
Sustainability and Safety
The CV-35 expansion joins the other investments and improvement works that the concession society executes throughout the project’s lifecycle to increase environmental sustainability and infrastructure safety. Among other actions, we have renovated the lighting system using LED technology, as well as signaling and improvements in the highway’s permeability and road traffic noise reduction protections.
Sacyr provides the best technical solutions available, such as the layered application of novel asphalt paving mixtures that use dust from recycled rubber tires and reduce external rolling noise, in addition to the state-of-the-art machinery used to manufacture and spread this compound out, that is more efficient and less polluting than other industry counterparts, to name but a few.
All of it with the intended goal to offer safe and efficient infrastructures to users in the most environmentally sustainable way possible. Furthermore, the good condition of infrastructures translates in lower fuel consumption, lower commute times and higher road safety.
