The Rande Bridge is a cable-stayed bridge near Vigo, Pontevedra, Spain. It spans Vigo Ria across the Rande Strait, linking the municipalities of Redondela and Moaña.HistoryIt was designed by Italian engineer Fabrizio de Miranda, the Spaniard Florencio del Pozo (who was also in charge of its foundations), and Alfredo Passaro. The bridge was built in 1978. It forms part of the 'Atlantic Motorway' (AP-9). It was exclusively a toll bridge until 2006, when it became a shadow toll stretch.It has a length of 1,604 metres, its pillars have a height of 148 metres and its main span measures 401 metres. Although it was not the biggest (cable-stayed) span in the world when it opened, it was the longest span with more than two lanes. The bridge, which links Redondela and Moaña through the Strait of Rande, is an emblematic piece of engineering in the ria of Vigo.It currently carries around 50,000 vehicles per day. It is believed that there will be congestion problems in the near future, so the widening alternative has already been studied and projected. Since its opening to traffic in 1981, more than 230 million vehicles have passed through it. It did cost 3.658 million pesetas to build at the time.Planning Redondela trip won't be overwheling when you use's Insprock itinerary maker.

Puente de Rande Reviews
Meirandeに行く途中に見えました。ランデの大きな橋は遠くから見ても見事の一言です。我々巡礼者には、はまり効果はないですが、自動車を利用する人たちにはまちにまった高架橋だったことでしょう。 more »I saw on the way to Meirande. Big Rande bridge seen from a distance, then you say it is. It was a viaduct at all to people who use a car our pilgrims don't effect you get stuck is the hamachi?
Es el puente de acceso a Vigo desde el norte por la AP-9. No es visitable, ni una atracción turística. Únicamente le puedes hacer fotos desde alguno de los pueblos de la Ría. more »It is the bridge of access to Vigo from the North via the AP-9. It is not open to visitors, and a tourist attraction. Only you can take pictures from one of the villages of the estuary.

Currently in the works and with some deductions if you have to pass it (une Vigo with the area of Morrazo, Pontevedra, Santiago etc.)
Rating a bridge... well difficult, what rating? Engineering? proximity? the beauty? Let valuation what is a gigantic work that unites and closer to travelers. Moreover, it would have to wonder if it was really necessary to enlargement.
It was in his day a tremendous advancement in communications... today as many great works are beginning to be small...
An emblematic building of the ria, long game to photograph and how not to enjoy the views.
Beautiful bridge, emblematic. Too much traffic and asphalt in poor condition. A colorful bridge that has no way to enjoy cycling. So the landscape must be seen at excessive speed, improper to enjoy the Majesty of the Vigo estuary. In the reform are doing, hopefully have provided open to cyclists and pedestrians.
Simply fantastic. Extensions are underway at the time of writing this review.
