PRELIMINARY INVESTIGATION OF THE TERRAIN THROUGH WHICH THE MEDITERRANEAN MOTORWAY WILL BE BUILT; THE PORT LUMBRERAS-GUADIX SECTION

ESTUDIO PREVIO DE TERRENOS. AUTOPISTA DEL MEDITERRANEO. TRAMO: PUERTO LUMBRERAS-GUADIX

RESULTS ARE GIVEN OF THE LITHOLOGICAL AND GEOTECHNICAL INVESTIGATIONS OF THE MATERIALS FOUND ALONG THE SECTION OF THE MEDITERRANEAN MOTORWAY CORRESPONDING TO THE PROVINCES OF GRANADA, ALMENA AND MURCIA. LITHOLOGICAL AND STRUCTURAL MAPS (SCALE: 1/50000) AND GEOTECHNICAL, MORPHOLOGICAL CHARTS (SCALE: 1/200000) ARE APPENDED. THE SECTION IS PARTICULARLY DIFFICULT BECAUSE OF THE LITHOGRAPHY AND STEEPNESS OF THE TERRAIN. THE STEEP ZONES COMPRISE DIFFICULT AND UNSTABLE DRAINAGE MATERIALS WHICH GIVE RISE TO PROBLEMS OF DRAINAGE AND BRIDGE CONSTRUCTION. THE COMMONLY FOUND MARL AND SANDY MARL RESULT IN EARTHMOVING AND DRAINAGE PROBLEMS. PART OF THE TERRAIN CONSISTS OF CONGLOMERATES AND ALLUVIAL SOIL WHICH HAVE EXCELLENT PROPERTIES FACILITATING ROAD CONSTRUCTION OPERATIONS.
