Despite the pressurized water pipe flow has got a higher flexibility in its course than the free surface flow, the terrain enforces the construction of auxiliary elements which allow the water transferring. In E stretch of the Jucar river down course connection with V stretch (Nueva conducción Júcar-Vinalopó") the pipe must overcome different transport infrastructures and four ravines, choosing pipe jacking and aqueducts respectively. This article is focused on the solution given to these aqueducts, especially to the Roig´s gully aqueduct, near the village of Moixent, for which conditions of various kinds imposed a unique design."
