The improvement of transportation systems is extremely relevant in the development of a city and its life quality. The Lima municipal government aimed to recover the right-of-way of the main highways. Hence, an auxiliary road, occupied by the “Jockey Club”, was used for the construction of the new “El Derby” RI (Road Interchange).
During the peak-hour, the existing road interchange has 8% of the average total traffic volume. Moreover, the reduction in the level of service is due to qualitative factors such as the reduction of the lane and the high density of the vehicles.
Similarly, the proposed road interchanges have no grading because space is a concern. Hence, the reinforced soil system was opted.
The reinforced soil system wall has concrete segmental panels as facade and it is reinforced with polymer straps that render the structure stable.
