Divulgan fotos de concreto dañado en el Bulevar Costero

A raíz de la nota publicada hoy por El Vigía, más ciudadanos preocupados por la calidad en el concreto vertido en la obra de regeneración urbana del Bulevar Costero, divulgaron fotografías en las que se aprecian grietas en la primera parte donde fue colado el material.

Conforme a testimoniales de personas que trabajan en otros laboratorios de materiales, los daños están frente a los negocios de venta de comida de mariscos, a un costado de la avenida Miramar.

Las causas pueden ser por “falta de compactación en las terracerías”, por “mala calidad en el concreto”, que no tuvo “buena dosificación”, o un “tratamiento prematuro”.

La parte que fue expuesta corresponde a la zona de trabajo de la empresa OLAC, y la fuente consultada afirmó que no corresponde a la base fluida, sino a la colocación de concreto hidráulico.
