The bridge of the Barqueta
It consists of a steel arch of 214 m. whose ends form a triangular portico on each side, cable-stayed to support the board that has a length of 168 m. whose only supports are four vertical supports at a distance of 30 m. on the banks of the river without more intermediate supports and with a width of 21.40 m.
The triangular porticos receive the axial force of the arch, visually serving as the "gate" of entrance to Expo 92, the theme park and the technology park.
Puente de barqueta
Bron är även känd som Puente Mapfre
Det var på grund av att Försäkringsbolaget Mapfre finansierade bygget av bron.
It was built between 1989 and 1992, on the occasion of the Universal Exposition Expo'92, and conceived as the main gate for this.
Built between 1989 and 1992 as access to the Universal Exhibition site. It was designed by
engineers Juan J. Arenas and Marcos J. Pantaleón, with only one eye supported from shore to shore.
Its only arch is steel cable-stayed by the board itself. It is a suspension bridge built on land, being turned to its original location.
Jag personligen gillar arkitekturen på denna bro. På kvällen så lyser den upp som en del av Sevilla. Precis som allt annat som lyser upp.
