Advances of the Pumarejo Bridge

SACYR has recently published a video with the progress status of the works of the new Pumarejo bridge in Barranquilla, Colombia. The cable-stayed section with 380 m of central light over the Magdalena River and 38.10 m wide will be the widest bridge in Latin America and the largest in the world in its type. At present, the access spans of 70 m of type light with autocimbra are being executed, one of the largest used to date in the world.

The main viaduct has a total length of 2173 m divided into three sections: 618 m of accesses on the left bank, currently under construction with M.S.S.; a central cable-stayed section of 800 m, currently running the two central pylons; and the accesses on the right margin of about 755 m, similar to those on the left bank that will also be executed with M.S.S.

IDEAM has carried out the modified detailed design and is carrying out the technical assistance during the execution for the SES Magdalena Consortium, led by SACYR.

The Spanish Ministry of Public Works visited the works on November 22, 2017.
