The Provincial Councils of Gipuzkoa and Bidegi have awarded Eptisa a new services contract to carry out the work management of the project to complete the works of the variant of the GI-632 in the section: Antzuola - Bergara in the Basque Country, which is aimed to finalize the Zumarraga- Bergara highway.
Eptisa, who has participated carrying out the work management in previous sections of the GI-632 variant between the Urretxu / Legazpi junction and the Antzuola semi-junction, will carry out the same work management tasks in the 4.8 kilometers that remain to be built until arriving at Bergara.
This includes, during the next 25 months and in addition to the facultative management of the works, a geometric and execution quality control, geological consultancy, coordination of Occupational Health and Safety, environmental, planning and budget monitoring, and lifting of the final state of the works. In addition, the contract also includes specialized support according to the needs of the work, as well as the realization of the modified and complementary designs, among other works.
On February 28, the Deputy General of Gipuzkoa, Markel Olano, and the Provincial Minister of Road Infrastructures, Aintzane Oiarbide, together with the mayors of Bergara and Antzuola, Elena Lete and Beñardo Kortabarria, inaugurated the beginning of this work.
This 4.8 kilometer section is considered a real challenge from the engineering point of view, since it is planned to carry out maintenance and stabilization screens for clearing, embankment foundations and execution of walls in the Bergara junction area, among other works. Also included are five giant structures, one of which will reach sixty meters high.
Once this section is completed, the so-called Gipuzkoa Roundabout will be closed, which will allow any village in the territory to have a high capacity track in a distance less than 15 kilometers. It will also substantially improve the connections of Goierri and Debagoiena regions.
