Place: Platanotopos, Giannitsa, Pella, Greece
Contractor: PYRAMIS S.A
The project concerns the construction of flood protection works in the section of the Tsinarli stream, from the bridge over the Giannitsa-Thessaloniki National Road to the bridge over Giannitson-Goumenissa Street, with a total length of 2,866.28 meters long. The objectives were the flood protection of the city of Giannitsa. Initially, the bed was formed by the formation of the required standard cross-section by excavating trenches or formation of slopes using the materials from borrow pit. Then the slopes and the bed were covered with the construction of gabion boxes and filling them with crushed material of quarry origin, as well as the necessary steps in the bed for the expansion of the stream. Finally, the necessary technical works were constructed at the existing bridges with the creation of retaining walls.
