Channelling Río Genil

Public. Hydraulic urban infrastructure.

Work to channel the Río Genil as it passes through the Granada Province town of Loja by means of earthworks and the formation of a rockfilled protective dyke on the right bank; enlargement of the Gran Capitán bridge and the designing of a new public space next to the Narváez Gardens.

Creation of concrete walls in the area around the Gran Capitán Bridge to close off the two dyke sections which meet at that point; and restoration of the surface regained from the Río Genil, with improvement to appearance and landscaping in the area.
