The paved areas, excluding the car accesses and the terrace area outside the Bar, are coated with stone trimmed asphalt concrete. The green areas will be targeted for the existing vegetation reinforcement in the slope areas, proceeding to the replacement work of degraded species. Occasionally some trees will be brought, fed by an automatic irrigation system and flagged by boilers in the paved areas.
