The Government of Spain concluded the indictment and conditioning of the Rambla de San Cayetano Torre-Pacheco (10/11/2009)

The president of the Hydrographic Confederation of Segura (CHS), José Salvador Fuentes Zorita, and the Mayor of Torre Pacheco, Daniel García Madrid, has visited today the completion of renovation and channeling the stretch of river located between the Diversion Channel Tajo-Segura and the Rambla de San Cayetano, in the municipality of Torre Pacheco.

This project, implemented by the Ministry of Environment and Rural and Marine Affairs (MARM) through CHS, has been made by the company Castillejos Works Company, Inc., an investment of 253,610 euros and a lead time of 4 months.

The works, framed in the State Special Fund for Promoting the Economy and Employment, managed by the Marmara through the CHS, solve the problems caused in the area for lack of proper water drainage when rain falls in some importance, such as occurred last September, which caused no damage in San Cayetano, despite its strong intensity, thanks to the channel behaved correctly.

Therefore, the CHS has improved the existing drainage in the village of San Cayetano, at the request of the City of Torre-Pacheco reflected in the project execution which was developed by its technical services.

In this hamlet is the Rambla de San Cayetano, recently channeled, which lead to different channels of varying importance.

In one of them, which has acted, preparation was made partially, to its mouth being about 300 feet without conditioning.

In this section, the Promenade, which was not on track, and even gets to have some counter-slope, crossed a road in the hamlet (Avileses way) through the drainage work was insufficient, and that was partly terrified to loose material with the downstream hydraulic section was undermined, causing major disruptions in the area, which is why the immediate need of it.

Channeling and preparation of this channel has been implemented northwest of San Cayetano and extends from the Diversion Channel to the mouth in the Rambla de San Cayetano, in an approximate length of 300 meters.

The works include general clearing and demolition of the existing masonry that interferes with the channel, the general conditioning, running the concrete slab with wire mesh and slopes with stone pitching, and access, reinstatement of services, and all ancillary works .

New step for vehicles

The CHS has undertaken the repair of the runway clearing the land itself, and the protection of the slopes with stone pitching, while it has demolished an existing masonry, over which runs a regional road in order to replace one of greater hydraulic capacity, equipped with stone pitching fins.

The project area can be divided into two sections: the first section runs from the shipping channel-channel Campo de Cartagena, to its intersection with the street and the second tranche from its intersection with the street to its mouth on the boardwalk San Cayetano.

In the first stage, we retained the existing channel width, while in the second leg because you have a narrowing, the width has been increased, coinciding with the stretch and executed.

To cause minimal visual impact and to continue the existing stretch of river, has executed a trapezoidal concrete hearth and slopes mesh stone pitching.

The slopes have a coating thickness of 40 cm., The slab width of 5 meters and draft of 1.73 meters (measured at the edge of the section).

As the step of the way of Avileses, previously carried out through three concrete pipes of 800 mm in diameter, have been placed as the work of draining two precast concrete frames 2 meters wide and 1.5 meters in the resulting lateral fins that have been pitching well of stone, similar to crossing the channel upstream of the transfer.

Besides the works above described, there have been additional works necessary for restoration and improvement of areas affected by replacing the pavement, sidewalks, pipes, rails, barriers and easements in general have been damaged by reason of the works.

It has also raised the grade of the road section across the channel, as well as improving the current mouth of the Rambla de San Cayetano, as it has increased the current section, placing a rockfill pitching in hearth and slopes similar the existing one.
