On Saturday 6th of November 2021, one of the twin tunnels under Glories Square opened to the public.

The 1Km long tunnels have been excavated in a highly consolidated urban area with high presence of existing utilities and under several existing ancient railway tunnels that are in service under the square. It is described in the Municipality’s website as one of the “most complex construction works ever performed in the city”.

Its construction required the construction of 60.000 m2 of retaining walls up to a depth of 54m and pumping more than 25.000 m3 of water every day during the construction process.

Tec Cuatro is part of the JV responsible for the works supervision.
