Borja Martín Martínez, a CFCSL civil engineer, updates us on the current progress on this bridge. The execution of the central arch is just beginning. It has a 324 m long span and its height is 90 m above the average reservoir water level (point 3 of the figure below):
The approach spans on both margins are entirely completed.
A cycle of one segment per week has been achieved on both margins simultaneously; 14 segments of each semi-arch have been completed out of a total of 46.
In brief, the current advance percentage is:
- Foundations =100%
- Abutments = 100%
- Piers = 100%
- Deck = 80%
- Arch = 30%
The bridge design was carried out by CFCSL during 2009 and 2010. The execution began in May 2011 and the completion is scheduled for 2015.
