Planché sanitario sobre muretes con rellenos de zahorras, incluso negativos y mallazos.

I think mallazo is a kind of mesh, inserted to prevent subsidence, but negativos?

According to a public works pdf, these are casting negatives
Explanation:
(Moulds). The text (look for point 2.4.4.) refers to casting over reinforcements placed in situ; the shuttering goes over the moulds.

Mallazo in that case would be the thick mesh used for gabions.
