From April to August, Matinsa completed the contract signed with the Ministry of Civil Works of Spain to repair and stabilize cut slopes damaged by big rain events  in Highway A-66 in Baños de Montemayor , province of Cáceres.

Main works include:

  • Removal of slided material at the toe of the slopes and earth excavation in the head of slopes to improve stability
  • Removal of big rocks to prevent accidental falls
  • Construction and reconstruction of rip-rap embankments
  • Stabilization of cracked areas with attenuator barriers and wire mesh
  • Installation or rock fall protection barriers
  • Post stabilization works including ditches and asphalt repair, road marking, installation of safety barrier and traffic signing.

In July, phase 1 of the works was finished and traffic restrictions were reduced. At that time traffic was permitted from Baños de Montemayor interchange. In early August, all traffic restrictions were removed.
