Bascule bridge of Barcelona

Spain

Description

The Bascule Bridge in Barcelona was constructed to establish a new land connection between the Poniente and Adosado docks of the Port. The project is divided into two parts; the section of mobile
bridge over the navigation channel built in structural steel and with special piles which house the actuators for the draw bridge; and the access viaducts that connect the base of the docks with the mobile bridge section. The bridge deck at 22 meters above sea level is actuated to enable larger ships to navigate the channel. The combined length of the marine works is 1,150 meters and the bridge is 12 meters wide.

Highlights

• The total length of the work is 1,150 meters and the width of the bridge is constant 12 meters.
• This bridge can be considered as singular not only its deck but also the main piers, elements that harmonize and complete an almost sculptural ensemble.
