ALE bridges Júcar River

UK-headquartered transport engineering specialist ALE has coordinated the installation of a 2,100-tonne bridge over the Júcar River in Cullera, Spain.

The 200 m-long bridge was installed using SPMTs, as opposed to traditional methods, in order to speed up the operation and to reduce costs.

"This bridge is essential for easing the city's traffic congestion as part of the new highway and we were proud to take part in this complex and challenging bridge launch in the most beneficial way," said Carlos Gerez, ALE's account manager - civil and mining. 

"In a traditional bridge launch, the entire bridge structure would need to be reinforced and would require additional civil works," said Gerez. ALE's proposed method of installation reduced these extra costs. "We designed a solution using SPMTs that meant the bridge only needed to be reinforced in specific areas, which saved valuable time and cost for the client.
