The anchored wall has a staggered shape with levels of 2 m and buttresses on each 8 m in plant. The next stretch of road is a platform built in a clearing with a length of 300 m.
 
The other road is built on landfill. At the edge of the embankment is made of reinforced concrete wall of a variable height from 3 meters to 5 meters.
 
Once the platform is created, it is carried out all the urbanization of the road, consisting of making sidewalk, railings, drinking water network, sewerage and stormwater network, telephone network and electricity network.
 
The list of work to be carried is: excavations located in rock and in a compact field to build the retaining walls, filled and embankments for the construction of the road.

Retaining walls of reinforced concrete anchored walls, drainage systems associated with the walls.
