The Gallery | Cadiz Bridge nears completion

The new La Pepa Bridge in Cadiz, Spain, is nearing completion, with the installation of the cabled sections.

The 3km-long cable-stayed structure includes a removal span. It is being built over the bay of Cadiz and will connect the city with Puerto Real on the other side of the bay.

The bridge (route shown in red) will link Cadiz in the west with Puerto Real on the mainland.

UK lifting specialist ALE has been working on the transportation and lifting of the cabled sections.

To date, 50 sections have been installed, with lengths varying from 10m to 52m and weights between 150t and 1055t. The largest section, the removable span, is 150m long and weighs 4,000t.

The project is expected to complete in May.
