Consolidation of the Bridge San Alberte

The designed restoration works were aimed to rebuild the cutwater; to replace the damaged voussoirs in the medieval vault; to reinforce these voussoirs with a thread of hydraulic lime mass concrete to improve stability; to seal the road; and to replace its asphalt pavement.

With the aid of some falseworks, parapet walls were dismantled, the filler was excavated, and the overhanging walls were partially removed. In the medieval arch, the deformed part was removed and reassembled with its revised guidance, adding new voussoirs to replace those that were in disrepair or broken. Once the vault was closed, flat jacks were used to tighten it and to make the removal of the scaffoldings easier once the part of the keystone was wedged.

The walls of the tympana were strengthened by increasing its thickness.

The intervention ended with the installation of parapets and the new paving made of concrete with incorporated aggregate that remained exposed thanks to an forget inhibiting product and its subsequent washing with water under pressure.
