Abstract:

To provide access to an intake tower at a reservoir in the province of Granada, Spain, a pedestrian bridge with capacity to carry a 17 t truck was needed. The beauty of the landscape at the site made aesthetics especially important in the design of the bridge. Priority was also given to using simplified construction techniques because of the difficult working conditions on the steep hillside and the 80 m height of the intake tower. The solution that was finally developed consists of a slender cable-stayed structure built with a construction system of considerable simplicity.
