We are building the New Railway Bridge that will connect the communes of Concepción and San Pedro de la Paz in the Biobío region (Chile). A complex project requiring an investment of 174 million euros, in which we apply innovation to improve passenger transport and meet the demand of local agricultural and forestry activities.
One of the main works of this contract is the 1,883-meter long two-track ballasted bridge, which will replace the current one dating from 1889.
To construct the bridge, our colleagues at Sacyr Engineering and Infrastructure have created a structure called a "beam launcher," which innovates in this type of project in Chile.
Our construction company already has experience in these innovative solutions, having implemented a similar one at the Pamplona-Cúcuta highway project in Colombia.
