First prize in Vinaròs footbridge competition

schlaich bergermann partner is part of the winning team led by the Levantina Ingenieria y Construcciones SA and Pantallax SL in the competition for a new pedestrian and cycle bridge in Vinaròs, a town at the Costa del Azahar in Spain’s province of Castellón.

The project includes the landscaping and redesign of a 9,150 m² green area on the left bank of the Cérvol coastal river, which is to be transformed into a Mediterranean forest with pines and native plants. The centerpiece of the project is the stress-ribbon bridge designed by schlaich bergermann partner in Madrid, which has a main span of 50 m and a total length of 77 m. The bridge will run in parallel to the sea line and provide an elegant crossing for pedestrians and cyclists, with a 2 m wide walkway and a 3 m wide bike lane. 

Construction is scheduled to start next year. We look forward to working on this project together with our Spanish partners. Congratulations to everyone on the team.
