Villaquarta ringroad

Realization of the preliminary draft for the completion of Villaquarta ringroad

Company description

Hatton S.r.l. is a company founded in 1998 by a team of engineers with years of experience in the field of road infrastructure. Hatton S.r.l. works on various types of infrastructure for which it prepares both the road part (geometric, safety and visibility) and the structural part (body and major works). It operates extensively throughout the national territory but also performs infrastructure projects in international territory, mainly in Africa and South America.

The project

Villaquarta ringroad, already partially completed on the west side of Villaquarta urban area, was in the need of solutions to complete its path on the east and south front. The project had to be faced with considerable attention to environmental issues, assessing the compatibility with historical, architectural and landscape constraints, and the hydric environment, in order to integrate the mitigation of the potential impacts directly in the project proposals. The choice of the optimal path between the different solutions was derived from a comparison based on the results of the transportation, territorial and environmental studies as well as on the needs expressed by the Administrations and Local Authorities. The project involves the construction of a new highway link that takes origin from the Villaquarta South access up to the new Portoserro motorway toll along the A66 (east of Villaquarta), a new stretch of countryside road, and the safeness of the existing roads and of the south-east ringroad of Villaquarta. Along the route, three major bridges as well as a viaduct that crosses over Villaquarta-Portoserro railroad and the A66 motorway, have been designed.

Technical difficulties

The project presented several difficulties, mainly due to the diversity of interventions in various areas of the ringroad. The flexibility in managing the sections of ProSt Premium combined with Real Time Design has allowed us to easily manage the modification of localized sections and the adaptation to the existing structural constraints. An additional problem was the high number of axes and intersections in the project. Thanks to the management of the intersections present in ProSt Premium, the problem was solved very efficiently, mostly thanks to the automatic viewing of the profiles and to the display of the sections alongside the area of intersection area.

Details of the project

  • Pavement and paving: 800.000 m³
  • Steel reinforcement and structures in elevation: 32000 t
  • Sound absorbing barriers: 19 Km
