Foundations and geotechnical aspects : construction and project management
The seven southern section viaducts, with a total length of some 4,3 km, traverse a variety of geological units. Preferential weathering in the upper reaches of the profile necessitated that two main founding solutions be adopted: piles and spread footings. The spread footing founding depth varied from 3 to 7 m while that for the piles approached 30 m in places. Table 1 details the foundation attributes.
