Vía Verde Footbridge over the river Cidacos

The bridge is a 3-span continuous beam with a 2.5, 44, and 2.5 m span each.

The elevation of the bridge follows the moments envelope of the continuous beam of 3 spans, placing the material at the top in areas where it is necessary to release lower clearance.

To highlight the fixed end, the web has been folded in the area corresponding to the positive moments. This generates a warped surface that creates a contrast of span outside, and enters the inside of the bridge making it look like a naval construction.
