The Pedestrian Bridge crosses the C-17 highway. The bridge is key component to improve the accessibility of the Municipality of Montcada i Reixac (Barcelona). The 46.5 m long and 3 m wide structure integrates two elevators at each end to ensure universal accessibility. The structural system consists of two Vierendeel trusses with an unusual curved geometry, and a steel concrete floor. The trusses are elastically fixed to the piers. The bridge was assembled off-site so that it could be installed one night without major traffic disruption. This simpler, innovative and transparent design, was built within a very limited budget.
The shape of the pedestrian bridge manages to move away from the conventional and standard current designs to create an innovative setting in the urban landscape, breaking the monotony created by the circulation roads. The pedestrian bridge covers a 46.5 m span-length, encasted on four bent-shaped piles which fit perfectly with the enlightened and progressive design.
