Pedestrian Bridge takes shape in Vinaròs

Our design for a new pedestrian bridge in Vinaròs, Spain, now gracefully spans the River Cérvol.

The structure is part of an extensive project to redesign the riverbank, a collaboration between sbp (bridge design & engineering), Levantina, Ingenieria y Construcciones, and Pantallax (both construction), as well as the landscape architects from Burgos & Garrido Arquitectos.

Following the erection of the elegantly shaped concrete abutments, two 60-meter-long stress ribbons were successfully lifted into place using two cranes. These high-strength steel stress ribbons are anchored to tendons embedded in the abutments via micropile foundations. Each stress ribbon measures only 70 cm in width and 30 mm in height. Prefabricated concrete slabs, 12 cm thick, are installed atop the stress ribbons, creating a pathway for pedestrians and cyclists along the beach promenade.

We are thrilled about the construction progress and particularly proud of this unique project, which we secured shortly after opening our Madrid office in 2020.
