ADIF WILL CONTRACT G.O.C. TO DESIGN THE LEVEL CROSSINGS SUPPRESSION IN PORRIÑO

G.O.C. has been awarded, in a joint venture with PROINTEC, the contract to design the suppression of Porriño’s level crossing in Monforte de Lemos – Redondela railway line. The services to be provided include the drafting of a geotechnical study, the study of alternatives, the basic design and the constructive design.

The actions necessary to eliminate the level crossing, a historical problem in the urban centre of O Porriño (Pontevedra), include burying the railway track under the current crossing, the location of a halt inside the underground section and the installation of a technical station for the overtaking and parking of trains (PAET) in the immediate surroundings of O Porriño.

Due to the proximity and density of the adjoining houses, the elimination of the crossing entails a special technical difficulty, hindering the implementation of the usual solutions, which allow the crossing of the roads above or below the existing roads without affecting its layout. Furthermore, in addition to a considerable circulation of road traffic (about 6,500 vehicles per day), the passage supports the crossing of the numerous pedestrians.

The execution of the contract will take place over 16 months, with a budget close to one million euros.
