This operation included a series of actions intended to remodel road and rail access routes to Bilbao via the Western area, eliminating the impact of previous accesses and burying two railway lines to allow future transformation of the Olabeaga district.

The work is a structure that covers the rail line allowing overhead road traffic; unusually, the track will be built after commissioning of the road, by excavating under the structure. For the purposes of environmental integration and in order to mitigate the acoustic impact, it includes an alignment of 7 x 10 m acoustic barriers on either side of the road.
