The execution of the Valdebebas’ arch continues

The works on the outstanding Arch Bridge of Valdebebas do not stop.

After finishing the arch, the placement on site of the last segments of the lateral cantilever of the deck, the precast slabs on the deck and the first tubes that will materialize the double Diagrid continues. The Diagrid will link the arch with the deck, and will make the Valdebebas bridge unique in its typology.

The Diagrid of the Valdebebas arch is an evolution of the Network-type hanger system in Bowstring arch bridges, which IDEAM, S.A. has developed in the arch bridge over the Deba river and in the Palma del Río bridge more than 10 years ago.

The new arch bridge of Valdebebas will connect the Terminal T-4 of the Barajas Madrid airport with Valdebebas crossing over the M-12, with 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 detailed design and is carrying out the Construction Management for Junta de Compensación Parque de Valdebebas and Ferrovial is the constructor.
