The project for “The Stabilisation of the Slope Above the Regional Road at the Western Entrance to the Town of Povoação” was awarded by the Regional Secretariat for Science, Technology and Equipment. This project consisted in re-profiling the slope, creating intermediate berms and the corresponding drainage channels, pinning and applying shotcrete to the 1st slope, where a rock-lined wall with hydro-seeding will be built, as well as in the construction of a pedestrian walkway and gardens.
