  • Yes it is well made, and even modern, but ... as they say, is for English view, and frankly it's not a milestone of São Paulo and not a classic.

  • This bridge comes down to modern architecture in Sao Paulo. Recommend a visit if you're on foot leaving the shopping Morumbi visit morumbi bridge will be 300 meters walk (the estaiadas does not accept pedestrian bridge). This point will have a wide vision. Another alternative of car is coming by the marginal pinheiros sense Interlagos watching the view of the buildings on the opposite bank and access the Av sense Roberto marinho bridge

  • Octávio Frias de Oliveira bridge is a landmark in the national architecture, because it was built with a single format in the world: two curved bridges forming an X and supported by you are connected to a single mast. A cable-stayed bridge is a bridge suspended by steel cables sets (the so-called art, giving rise to the name stayed), connected to a tower or mast to give support to their leads. Modern, is constructed in locations where the use of the pillars is not advisable. Is considered the evolution of the traditional suspension bridge. How are you supporting the bridges? Support the bridges is made by art, which are bundles of cables ranging from 15 to 25, steel wire covered by a sheath of polyethylene yellow, whose purpose is to protect the art from the rain, wind and the Sun's rays are 492 tons of steel, which were placed side by side would go 378,000 meters , comparable to the distance from the city of São Paulo and of Ourinhos (370 km). The biggest stand has 195 metres and the lowest 78 metres. The distance between the art is of 7 metres from the side of the River, and 6.5 m from the side of the road system. As the architect João Valente, designer of the cable-stayed bridge, "the yellow color of the art was chosen for aesthetic reasons. The idea was to set up a kind of ' light ' network in the middle of the sky ". How are the bridges? * The length of the bridges is 2,887 metres. The estaiados spans have 290 metres, with 16 meters wide, and 10.5 metres to the three tracks of bearing. * The highest bridge, Jornalista Roberto Marinho Avenue direction to the Marginal Pinheiros, there's a gap of 23.4 meters high, and the lowest, meaning Marginal Pinheiros to Jornalista Roberto Marinho Avenue, has 12 meters * asphalt used in bridges is from category SMA (Stone Mastic Asphalt), same type used at the Autódromo José Carlos Pace (Interlagos). This flooring has high impact resistance and moving loads. Also allows greater drainage and prevents deformation of the pavement. * In 290 meters estaiados on each side were placed aluminum plates called "wind noses", used to dispel wind on the slopes. Both the bridges as the mast are painted with a varnish antipichação that allows up to four consecutive washes. * The bridges have a stormwater drainage system that causes the water to go through manholes before being thrown to the ground, which avoids dirt track. * The cable-stayed bridge became a point of reference in the city even before getting ready. During construction, several teams of magazines, television stations and advertising agencies around the country have used the work as the backdrop for pictures of fashion catalogues, and recordings of commercial advertisements. Engineering and architecture students from universities of São Paulo also visited the bridge. What's so special? According to the experts, the Octavio Frias de Oliveira Bridge is the first in the world that unites two curved tracks connected to the same tower. Is the only one still with the main mast on X format. This is because when the track (or Board) do you need a specific calculus curve and different for each of the cables or art. The other major bridges that follow the same architectural concept, in General, are built straight or combined with other passages where the pillars give support. There are already estaiadas curved bridges, but with only one track. Another innovation of São Paulo. And the lighting? Is special? The Octavio Frias de Oliveira Bridge can be seen from afar and added to the light and colors, during the night, thanks to special lighting, supplied by the company Philips. By nightfall, the inner part of the mast passes with colored lights, conferred by ColorBlast projectors equipped with Led, system that makes possible the exchange of colors, especially on dates or special events, and consumes 53% less energy than common systems. The clues and access handles also received special lighting, turning the bridge in a real postcard to the city. Where are you located? On Marginal Pinheiros, between the bridges do Morumbi (Caio Pompeu de Toledo) and Ari Engineer Torres, in a region that has become the newest economic pole. Situated on the South side, is in the vicinity of Luiz Carlos Berrini avenues and the United Nations.
