Fomento (the Spanish Ministry of Development) has recently awarded the works for the drafting of the layout and construction designs of the A-76 dual carriageway between Ponferrada and Ourense. The Joint Venture formed by G.O.C., S.A., and PKVEINTIOCHO INGENIERÍA, S.L. has won the stretch that goes from the link of Monforte Este to Babela, in the province of Lugo.

The A-76 is a highway linking the cities of Ponferrada (León) and Ourense, making a conversion of the current N-120 in the section that runs from Ponferrada to Monforte de Lemos, area where the section in question is located . The trunk will have an approximate length of 7.7 km and will have three links. The approximate value of the entire project will exceed 27 million euros.

The design  works will be developed over 18 months and will analyze, among others, the following aspects: cartography and topography, geology and origin of materials, seismic effects, climatology and hydrology, traffic, geotechnical study, geometric layout, movements of lands, paving, drainage, structures, signaling and environmental integration.
