With a length of 10.4 km, the section runs through rough terrain, which has required the construction of five viaducts. Along its route, the A-8 reaches its highest point in Galicia, 698 m above sea level, at the top of O Fiouco, where it has been necessary to install an important system of beacons to guide traffic in low visibility conditions. This section and the Mondoñedo-Lindín section were the last two in the construction phase of the Cantabrian Highway, in Galicia.
Scope of the project
- 5 area viaducts
- 4 are overpasses
- 7 are underpasses (1 frame, 5 gantries and 1 with double deck)
- 5 walls (3 of reinforced soil and 2 of reinforced concrete)
