Consolidation of Bridge of Traba

The project was planned in 2008 and works has begun in 2010 with the aim of repairing the damage that the bridge has on its second cutwater, with a cavity at the foundation, which bare an important part of its foundation; and the walls of tympana downstream with severe collapses and convex parts in the parapets and in a poor and inadequate paving of the road.

Firstly; works will be undertaken by strengthening the foundation of the cutwaters, where the existing cavities will be filled and the exterior masonry will be replaced, with the aid of cofferdams made with sandbags. Then, once the provisional footbridge has been installed, the parapets will be disassembled, the pavement will be demolished, and the excavation of the filler will be started to make the disassembling of the overhanging parts of the walls easier, the cracks will be sealed, and the thickness of the threads of two of the vaults will be increased with lime concrete and pozzolans. Then, the masonry of the tympana will be installed and the new filler reinforced with geogrid of pvc coated polyester will be executed spread in layers of 50 cm of spread and compacted granular material. The new road surface stage will be run on two waterproof layers; and will consist on a concrete foundation and paving made of slabs and blocks of granite stone. Once the road is finished, the parapet previously removed will be installed.
