Serreria Bridge: a Calatrava-designed cable stay bridge in Valencia, Spain

Located in the south of Valencia, the City of Arts and Sciences is made famous by the designs of architect Santiago Calatrava and has become one of the most interesting points of the city. In the middle of this site featuring many of Calatrava's bridges and buildings, Puente Serreria rises with its 126m pylon height as the highest point of the City.

The backward-inclined steel pylon towers above the bridge and supports 29 front cable stays comprising between 31 and 61 strands and the 4 back stays with 85 strands each, support more than 1,800 tonnes of steel used for the bridge deck. The bridge features the new BBR HiAm CONA stay cable system where each strand is individually guided and sealed leak tight. All anchorage components of the BBR HiAm CONA have been designed for a stress ranges greater 300 MPa. The stays are furthermore equipped with the advanced BBR Square Damper system to prevent stay cable vibration.
