The award, granted by the Spanish Association of Civil Engineers and the Caminos Foundation, aims to publicise and raise awareness of city and territory projects whose design, planning and implementation contribute to the sustainable development of their surroundings.



The Port Authority of the Balearic Islands  (APB) has put out to tender the structural rehabilitation of the retaining wall on the access road to the Formentor lighthouse, which has been closed since September due to the risk of landslides.

At that time there was a local break in the wall, on which the MA-2210 road is located. The material broke off in the form of a 6-metre wedge in the longitudinal axis of the road, up to 3 metres crosswise and 6 metres in height.
