The first phase of work to cover the Ronda de Dalt ring road between the Mercat de la vall d’Hebron and the Institut Vall d’Hebron has now been completed. The two lanes affected by the work, one in each direction, are now open to traffic again. The project will help create a calmer area around the road and allow for the creation of a zone for pedestrians and outdoor activities.
The construction of the foundations for the central support wall means the roof will now be able to be built over the ring road between the neighbourhoods of Sant Genís dels Agudells and La Teixonera. The wall was completed on Monday, following two months of work, meaning the two affected lanes between exits 5 and 6 could be re-opened to traffic.
Work is due to resume as from January 2018, with the construction of two side walls on the same section between the Mercat de la Vall d’Hebron and the bridge on Av. Jordà, prior to the roof slabs being put in place. No traffic lanes need to be closed in order to carry out the work and consequently no disruptions to traffic are anticipated.
The project to cover the Ronda de Dalt will help reduce noise, pacify the local vicinity and allow residents to enjoy greater connectivity between neighbourhoods which are seriously divided by the road at present. The characteristics of the new space and the activities which can be organised there will be decided with the participation of local residents and entities via the Ronda de Dalt monitoring commission.
