Córdoba Avenue and Puerto Madero, connected by a modern bridge
September 15, 2011
The old way has been closed since last year because of modernization in the intersection between Cordoba Avenueanda the water front. It is expected that the new bridge, improved, streamline traffic of downtown.
Finally after a year of work, moved the metal structure that will pass between the district of Puerto Madero through Gierson Cecilia Street and downtown.
The previous bridge had been installed in 1895. The port and city are not like in old times, so the renovation was necessary. After installating you will see a bridge of 530 tons, 51 meterslong and 17 wide, will have four lanes, two for each movement, including pedestrian crossings will be two two meters each to be used as bike paths well.
Granted are expected to flow to Buenos Aires and could be an alternative exit to leave the city center. The facility is anticipated for these weeks when tasks counterweight, the folder bearing and hydraulic connections are completed.
In turn, the project will have a lighting system generator to prevent power outages when you need to activate the rotating mechanism, a modern bridge’new. Also a barrier system will be build along with a new automated cockpit command.
