Grey Venezia Marble in the Gran Vía de Colón
This project, by the Granada architect Muñoz Miranda, was undertaken entirely in Grey Venezia and involved the pavements on both sides of the Gran Vía de Colón avenue and the junctions with the perpendicular streets.
The paving consists of a band of some 9,500 m² for pedestrians, made of slabs 8 cm (1,300 m²) and 5 cm thick (7,600 m²) with the approaches to the zebra crossings of textured paving 5 cm thick 5 cm (600 m²) as well as another band of 1,500 m² on slopes consisting of large format thick pieces (±320 m³) separating the traffic and pedestrian areas and housing the planted areas, lampposts and canopies and other street furniture.
The separation between traffic and pedestrians is defined with a gutter to collect water on both sides (2,100 m). All this paving material has a textured finish that exponentially increases resistance to slipping.
