Footbridges over AP-7 Motorway. Orihuela Costa (Alicante)
Next Previous

In order to improve the communication and permeability through the AP-7 Motorway in the touristic zone of Orihuela -Costa (Southern Alicante, Spain), we have designed two footbridges, compatible with ciclying use, next to two presente road bridges.

Made with steel elements, the firs one is sited in the Villamartín Road, direct access to Zenia Boulevard Shopping Center. It has a total length of 81,31 meters, divided in two assimetrical span (43,30 and 38 m. long), overcrossing not only the main lanes of the motorway, but also the entry-exit lanes of La Zenia junction.

The second one, similar in design, is sited near to the next to be "IES-Orihuela Costa", High School. It has 60 m long, divided in two indentical isostatic modules of 30 m each one.

The design includes public lightning, deployé modules on the structure sides and in the upper side, in order to give not only additional security, but also climate confort to the users.
