Pumarejo Bridge

Camilo Rochels of the Consortium SES Magdalena shared a few days ago this video of the state of progress of the works of the New Pumarejo Bridge. As you can see, the two ends of the lateral cantilevers adjacent to the access viaducts have already been closed and the center of the main span is scheduled to close in the next few days. The cable-stayed section is 800 m long, with a main span of 380 m over the Magdalena River and 38.10 m wide, and will become one of the biggest bridges in the world in its typology. The cross section is a concrete box girder with lateral ribs and is being carried out by equilibrated cantilevers with on-site segments of 10 m, one of the largest segments in the world in this type of bridges. The 618 m long access viaducts on the left bank and 755 m on the right, with 70 m type spans, have been executed with M.S.S. IDEAM, S.A. has carried out the modified detailed design and is carrying out technical assistance during execution for the Consortium SES Magdalena, led by SACYR. Congratulations to all the great group of professionals who are participating in this great work.
