URA: Flood defence for the Ibaizabal River as it passes through Galdakao

Last Friday we started the works of the flood defence for the Nervion-Ibaizabal River as it passes through Galdakao, between Bengoetxe and Plazakoetxe, commissioned by URA.
The third phase of this important channelization project involves the hydraulic conditioning of a stretch of 1,640 m of the river, for which 190,000 cubic metres of rock will be excavated. This will double the hydraulic capacity of the riverbed up to 800 cubic metres per second, resulting in an important increase in safety for people as well as the economic activity in the area.
