A total of 20 companies present their offers in the tender for the new Archena bridge (15/04/2018)

A total of 20 companies have submitted their bids for the tender for the construction of the new Archena bridge, which will improve mobility and road safety in one of the main access roads to the town.

The works are valued at around 4.1 million euros.

The counselor of the Presidency and Development, Pedro Rivera, explained that a new bridge will be built on the Segura river in Archena and will preserve the current metal bridge as a service road in exit circulation to increase the mobility capacity of the main entrance to the town from the A-30 highway.

"The works will consist of the unfolding of the current bridge, located on the regional highway RM-554, to solve the problems of bottleneck in the main entrance of the municipality," said the counselor, who indicated that this action will give exit and entry to Archena in this central point of simultaneous way, without needing to alternate the senses of traffic.

Rivera said that to build the new infrastructure a bridge deck will be installed in parallel to the existing one, which will have a concrete structure and will not be a disturbing element of the view of the iron bridge, so it will not take away the limelight.

The restoration of the original bridge will involve reinforcement, repair and beautification actions.

According to the counselor, "we will value the bridge, because, with the solution proposed by the Ministry, we will reduce the traffic on it to half of what it supports at present, which will extend its useful life."

To link the new bridge, two radius curves greater than 100 meters will be executed within the existing urban space.

In addition, the electrical wiring on the bridge will be eliminated, in order to have the necessary clearance, burying the lining and moving underground junctions out of the abutments.
