Five Different Profiles In France/Spain Tunnel: “Le Perthus” tunnel is the link between Perpignan in France and Figueras in Spain in the French/Spanish border town of Perthus. Two 28.5 ft. (8.7 m) diameter tunnels, each 5.2 miles (8.4 km) long, is part of the overall link connecting the two countries.

The floor had an average thickness of 23.6 in. (600 mm) and was 18.4 ft. (5.6 m) wide. Cross slope of the floor varied between zero and 7.67 percent. Three different drainage pipes were incorporated into the floor during slipforming. The Commander III four-track had its tracks turned at 35 degree angles to run along the slope of the tunnel walls. The inner leg tubes were turned 45 degrees from their normal position.

High-Drive Tracks For Tight-Clearance Paving: GOMACO’s optional high-drive tracks are ideal for minimum-clearance situations that sometimes exist when adding lanes to ramps and highways or replacing streets in residential areas. The 11 in. (279 mm) wide track has a clearance height of 21.85 in. (555 mm) to the bottom of the track motor. The height of the motor allows clearance on the slab side of the track.
