On November 7th, the Secretary of State for Infrastructure and Mobility of Santa Catarina, Brazil confirmed the work award for the execution of the containment works of the slopes along the stretch of the SC-390 highway in the Serra do Rio do Rastro, with a total of 25 points of action, to the consortium led by Teixeira Duarte – Engenharia e Construções, S.A. with 97,5%

It is a design-construction contract, with the design by FGS Geotechnia – which completes the consortium with a 2.5% stake – with an expected duration of 12 months, and a contract value of 4.3 million Euros.

Located in the south of Santa Catarina, Serra do Rio do Rastro is one of the state’s hallmarks, with forests and waterfalls, unique landscapes and very diverse fauna, and is a popular location for sports and many events. The stretch of motorway that will be worked on has had countless and repeated landslides over the years, with regular closures; therefore, the execution of these works is highly anticipated by the local communities.
