The Norte Litoral Concession is located between Douro Litoral and Minho provinces and was assigned to VIALNORTE, aiming the operation, maintenance and construction of the following motorways:

  • A28 (IC1) from Oporto to Viana do Castelo – Maintenance and operation;
  • A27 from Viana do Castelo to Ponte de Lima – Maintenance and operation of the Viana do Castelo / Nogueira stretch and construction of the Nogueira / Ponte de Lima stretch;
  • A28 from Viana do Castelo to Caminha – Construction of the motorway and its road connections to Caminha and Vila Praia de Âncora.

 

Cenor joined the team of engineers responsible for the design of the road infrastructures, developing the design projects of 11 3-span overpasses and underpasses as well as the design projects of 12 underpasses (box-culvert type or precast arch type). In these structures, with conventional solutions, typical construction methods were used. Apart from these structures, one shall also highlight the design of Bridges, Viaducts, Pedestrian Bridges and Cut-and-cover tunnels.
