  • It is a point of attraction more this year that has returned to work. It is one of the 8 remaining in the world running. Located a few blocks of Caminito considered a museum along with that street Street, Fundación Proa, Quinquela Martín Museum Museum and the return of Rocha complies a walk ideal for joining with the Court's mouth Jr. about three blocks. Unfortunately the day of the visit rained a lot and did not work, nor were there people.

  • The French engineer Ferdinand Arnodin was the first who patented the idea of ferry bridges and intervened in the majority of which have been built. Trasbordadores bridges represent a different way of resolving the conflict posed two streams of traffic are incompatible: a vehicular traffic between two shores located low above the water and boats on the river traffic to cross. In Buenos Aires, the construction of the Nicolas Avellaneda transport bridge required three years approximately. Its structure is completely metallic and its construction was entrusted to the English factory, Earl of Datle Steel (his seal even can read profiles of the old bridge Nicolás Avellaneda). From England was sent by parts that were arriving by boat, ready for your Assembly. Only the foundations of each of the two lateral towers were of nation building, composed of eight-cylinder 90 centimetres thick brick masonry concrete-filled. These cylinders overlook at the foot of each pillar and are immersed 24 metres below the surface of the water. To secure them, several layers of different materials and thicknesses, had through in order to achieve to ensure the necessary resistance. The Nicolas Avellaneda transport bridge is 52 meters high. This is the length presenting from the bases of the towers to the top of the upper beam. The width of each of the bases is 27 meters and the total width of axis to axis of each of its columns, is 77.5 meters. This is the free section that leaves for navigation. On the lateral towers stands an upper beam, from which hangs a cart attached to a cable rail that leads it. This upper carriage hangs the nacelle, the so-called ferry, a sort of basket of eight metres wide by 12 metres long, which supported up to 50 tons of weight. From the nacelle were transported pedestrians, cars and trams, with a maximum capacity of 30 persons and 4-axis or carts. As well as the neighborhood of La Boca and La Isla Maciel, the ferry did not never offer an image of sleek modernity: from the outset its appearance referred to tough and dignified life of the immigrant worker. This makes it an essential emblem to represent the social identity of their place of location and more general values of Buenos Aires culture because it gives an account of the historical moment in which was born, marked by a strong vital impulse of the city and by the process of industrial transformation of throughout the port area. Ferry bridge Nicolás Avellaneda - only structure of this type which has survived in America - has remained as living a time framework confirms strongly the history of our country. The construction of this bridge was ordered in 1908 so join pedestrian and vehicle to the neighborhood of La Boca, in the prolongation of the Avenida Almirante Brown, 500 metres on the union of the Creek and the basin South, with the Isla Maciel, in Avellaneda. The work was inaugurated under the Government of Roque Sáenz Peña, Saturday, 30 May 1914, with the name of bridge, in homage to the famous statesman, President of the Republic Argentina between 1874 and 1880.

  • Nicolás Avellaneda bridge, crosses the Riachuelo River, linking the districts of La Boca, in the South of the city of Buenos Aires and the Isla Maciel in the municipality of Avellaneda. April 29, 2010 were inaugurated maintenance and enhancement works: vehicular and pedestrian traffic was improved to fix the bridge itself and the viaducts of access. Avoided that continue to deteriorate Board by the accumulation of land at the Causeway, which caused the corrosion of the two main beams. In the pedestrian walkways were removed mechanical parts that were loose restoring them with new. In addition renewed lighting system.
