For the new screed work as effectively as possible with the existing structure 986 ml of micro-piles of 150 mm diameter and 3000 batten of 32 mm will be used to sew the entire set.” ?
“As for the outer slope of the trunk and nose and the inner slope in its final section 178 concrete blocks of high density of 40 tons and 50 tons 40 blocks will be placed”, explains Ruiz de Angulo.?
?These days the contractor manufactures concrete blocks in external facilities located 5 km from Zumaia. “We hope that by mid-September the placement starts.
