Grau Road Interchange (Peru)
Alsina Peru is working on the construction of the Grau Road Interchange, an important project for the city of Trujillo, in La Libertad region on the north of Peru. This infrastructure aims to connect four major city avenues and its opening is scheduled for August 2014.
The work comprises two elevated viaducts about 425 meters long, consisting of 96 in-situ post-tensioned beams, supported by 22 “Gull Wing” columns with 6% slope ramps, in addition to the reconstruction of the oval and ornamental fountains.
Alsina Peru is currently implementing the project by using Alisply walls and scaffolding systems for the 22 “Gull Wing” shaped columns, as well as AR-80 shoring systems and Multiform equipment for the bridge’s deck formwork.
In addition to traditional formwork solutions, we are using a hanging anchor system that reduces formwork needs to an 80%, leaving a much cleaner workspace to perform other construction works.
La Libertad Consortium, integrated by the companies Terrak SAC, AMC SAC Corporate, Torres Chamber and the Peruvian subsidiary of CIA Works SA, are in charge of this project, that has a duration of 6 months. The total investment amounts to about $ 18 million and about 15 trailers have been chartered to transport equipment formwork from Lima to Trujillo.
Completion date: 2014
