Autopista del Norte carries out clean-up operations on 24 bridges and drainage works in the north of the country

As a preventive action to mitigate the effects caused by, the increase in the flow of coastal rivers at this time of the year, Autopista del Norte carried out works to clean channels in 24 bridges, run-off channels and pontoons located in the northern region of the country.

The works began in December last year and culminated this month, including manual clearing, cleaning with machinery and improvement of the formation of the channel of the following infrastructures located within Northern Toll Road:

No. Location (Km) Province Infrastructure
1 206+931 Barranca Pontoon
2 213+226 Barranca Fortaleza Bridge
3 224+494 Barranca Pontoon
4 252+097 Huarmey Pontoon
5 266+394 Huarmey Pontoon
6 293+000 Huarmey Run-off Channel
7 295+300 Huarmey Huarmey Bridge
8 312+558 Huarmey Culebras Bridge
9 332+922 Huarmey Pontoon
10 334+594 Huarmey Pontoon
11 373+926 Casma Carrizales Bridge
12 376+400 Casma Sechin Bridge
13 385+403 Casma Pontoon
14 406+118 Santa Pontoon
15 407+200 Santa Huambacho Bridge
16 420+900 Santa Lacramarca Bridge
17 443+720 Santa Coishco Bridge
18 448+992 Santa Santa Bridge
19 482+000 Santa Run-off Channel
20 493+000 Viru Run-off Channel
21 498+300 Viru Huamanzaña Bridge
22 501+380 Viru Chao Bridge
23 520+200 Viru Virú Bridge
24 543+000 Viru Run-off Channel

 

It should be noted that most of the channels presented problems of vegetation growth, sediment accumulation and solid waste. These actions were carried out after an inspection carried out by Autopista del Norte on all the bridges and drainage works located within its road concession, which goes from Pativilca to Trujillo.

It should be noted that in March of 2017 the north coast of Peru suffered the ravages of the climatic phenomenon known as the Coastal Niño. On that occasion, Autopista del Norte became a strategic ally for the restitution of vehicular traffic on the Pan-American Highway, through the authorization of alternative routes and aid for the most affected populations (see video).
