Old Suspension Bridge from Arcalís

12/10/2012

The video shows the installation of a suspension bridge over the river Noguera Pallaressa. A renovation of the old bridge in the village of Baro Arcalís TM Soriguera, Pallars Sovereign (Lleida). The present bridge was designed by the architectural firm of Fernandez Casado, with the peculiarity that the vertical support cables pass under the platform in the centre, thereby subjecting the cable to compression.

This design helps to give a profile to the whole structure. It was necessary to retain the original stone pillars, and in turn could raise the of the board to return periods of 500 years.

The project was awarded to the company by INCASOL Romero Polo, subcontracting all of the manufacturing and assembly of the bridge to Infraestructures Muntanya.
