Construction process of the Almonte river viaduct.

The High Speed Rail between Madrid and Extremadura crosses over River Almonte through a 996 m long viaduct with a great 384 m concrete arch, which make it the largest HSR arch bridge built to date. The bridge forms part of the section conceived to connect Madrid and Lisbon through High Speed, planned for a mixed traffic of freights and passengers with a maximum speed of 350 km/h. Both design and definition of the erection procedure (which conditions the design itself), have sought to combine the technical feasibility and the optimization of resources and costs of such a singular structure.

The bridge construction began in July 2011 and its completion was reached at the end of 2016.

  7. One thing is that while you are searching for a education loan you may find that you’ll need a cosigner. There are many cases where this is true because you could find that you do not use a past credit score so the loan provider will require you have someone cosign the credit for you. Great post.
