New bridge of Valdebebas

The in situ execution of the central section of the deck of the new singular Arch Bridge of Valdebebas begins, which will connect with the T-4 of the Barajas Madrid airport crossing over the M-12 Highway. Last Friday two of the 4 sections of the central steel box girder of the deck were placed and today the other two sections left from Galicia to Madrid.

The 24.5 m wide deck is made up of 5 segments, of which this week the complete central box-girder on which the arch will be executed will be placed on site.

The central section of the deck and arch, 130 m long, will be assembled in an area adjacent to the final location of the bridge, supported on temporary props, and once completed they will be moved in a singular operation to their final location.

The arch bridge has a main span of 162 m and a total length of 207 m.

IDEAM, S.A. is the author of the structural conception of the construction project and is carrying out the Construction Management for the Junta de Compensación Parque de Valdebebas.

Ferrovial is the constructor and Dizmar the steel workshop that is working on the bridge’s structure.
