New Valdebebas bridge

This week two of the three sections of the arch of the new Outstanding Arch Bridge of Valdebebas have been placed on site.

Currently the deck is already at 80%, with 18.9 m executed of the total 24.5 m, and only the segments 5.6 m wide of the cantilever remain to be placed on one of the sides. The arch will conclude with the placement on site in the next few days of the central segment supported on the lateral segments already placed and on the provisional central shoring.

Once the construction of the entire steel structure of the central section, which is 130 m long, 24.5 m wide and weighs about 2,400 tons, is completed, it will be moved to its final location on the M-12 in a singular operation.

The new arch bridge of Valdebebas will connect the T-4 of the Barajas airport with Valdebebas crossing over the M-12, with a main span of 162 m and a total length of 207 m.

IDEAM SA is the author of the structural conception of the construction project and is carrying out the Junta de Compensación Parque de Valdebebas and Ferrovial is the constructor.
