Puente de Pumarejo

2016, Barranquilla

Description

The new Puente de Pumarejo is one of the longest in Columbia. This bridge's construction made it possible for large vessels to navigate throughout the Magdalena River. Such navigation would have been previously completely inhibited by the current Pumarejo bridge.

This bridge improves the traffic flow between Barranquilla and Santa Marta, along Colombia's Atlantic Coast. It is hoped that this will then in turn solve the existing severe traffic problem in the area.

ConstruGomes was responsible for the execution of the totality of the bridge deck, for this it provided and operated two pairs of form travellers and wings travellers for the construction of the main bridge. For the execution of the access viaducts, ConstruGomess operated a movable scaffolding system M70D-S.

Technical Solution

Two pairs of F10 and CM10 ConstruGomes' form travellers, capable of executing segments with 10 meters length
One M70D-S movable scaffolding system
One CM15 Wing traveller
