Erques Bridge Details:
As said by Ferrovial, the bridge measures all but 369 feet (110 meters) and the deck is hanged by hangers from two arches. Each arch is built from two tubes linked together by diaphragms every 6.5 feet (2 meters) and concrete filled.
The bridge deck is made of a metal grid covered with a slab of reinforced concrete. To construct this bridge self-compacting concrete (SCC) with a compressive strength of 7,251.9 psi (50 MPa) was used.
