Progress of the new Pumarejo Bridge in Barranquilla, Colombia.

SACYR has recently published a new video with the progress status of the works of the new Pumarejo bridge in Barranquilla, Colombia.
The approaching left viaduct, executed with movable scaffolding system and a typical span of 70 m, is practically completed and soon the M.S.S. will be taken to the right side of the river to continue with the execution from span 3 towards the central cable-stayed area. The M.S.S. used in its execution has been manufactured expressly for the bridge and is one of the biggest used to date in the world.
The cable-stayed bridge with 380 m of central span over the Magdalena River and 38.10 m wide will be the widest bridge in Latin America and one of the largest in the world in its type.
The main viaduct has a total length of 2173 m divided into three sections: 618 m of the approach spans on the left bank, executed with M.S.S.; a central cable-stayed section of 800 m, currently running the two central pylons; and the approach spans 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.
