Last December the Minister of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda, José Luis Ábalos, opened an 8.1 kilometre stretch of Seville’s ring road, the SE-40, between the A-376 in Alcalá de Guadaíra and the A-4 in Dos Hermanas, which will be 77.6 kilometres long in total. Also in December, the El Torbiscal interchange (Utrera, Seville) became operational, at the crossroad of the N-4 road with the A-471, a point that produced congestion, especially in summer.

Ineco participated in both projects: for the SE-40 section, it supervised the construction projects; it carried out health and safety coordination and road safety audits and environmental monitoring, as it also did for the new El Torbiscal Interchange, for which it also drafted the project and provided support for mandatory purchases. Some of the more important environmental integration measures required in this project included the replacement of the Cañada Real de la Armada cattle route, the installation of acoustic screens and archaeological monitoring: two Roman necropolises with 63 burial sites were found.
