Consolidation medieval bridge Das Partidas

This is a Bridge which is placed over the river Tea, at the outskirts of the town of Ponteareas (Pontevedra). It consists of four arches and two small drains from different ages in the right support. One of them, the oldest -on the left- is from the Middle Ages and counts with several stonemason´ marks, and the newest -on the right- probably belongs to the 19th century. Its arch axis are varied: round, ogival and multiple-centre. Its masonry presented articulations in the keystones and several cracks. The bridge was rebuilt with action programs in which several materials and techniques were inadequately used. The bridge has a slow ridge with intense vehicular traffic as it still renders an important service in the area.

The cutwaters of the pillars number 2 and 3 were rebuilt. They were very damaged and they only conserved the rows of their bases. The remains were taken apart, the pieces which were in the river bed were recovered and the land was cleaned up with concrete breakwater up to 4 meters deep. The cutwaters were rebuilt on this improvement and they were crown with a paving similar to the one conserved in the pillar number 1.
