Freeway C-17 Vic – Ripoll
Service: Detailed Design
Client: GISA – Infrastructure Administration of Catalonia
Period: 2008 – 2009
GPO was awarded by GISA to take part in the DBO project for the Vic – Ripoll segment of the C-17 freeway. This 50 km segment was a concession awarded by the Catalan Autonomous Government.
The first segment (Centelles – Manlleu), 23 km long, had four lanes already. Consequently, construction consisted of minor improvements to improve road functionality and continuity with the rest of the project. The second segment (Manlleu – Masies de Voltrega), 8 km long, bypasses the city of Masies de Voltrega. And the third segment (Masies de Voltrega – Ripoll), 18 km long, required widening and construction of the second carriageway with the same cross section as the existing corridor.
