Puente de Rande, Redondela

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.

  • Already the English pirates were waiting in the arrival of the Great ships with the gold and silver of America. Now are white gloves pirates who take the money without violence. Drake was an ordinary amateur on piracy. The duplication of the bridge boards will increase the business that offers some private corruption. The landscape is that deteriorate but looks more modern.

  • Very good views of the ría de Vigo and the island of San Simón. A pity that destroy the estuary and the bridge with the extension.

  • Nice bridge which spans across the river... what flows through us the Pocket has been the cost of enlargement so 4 vacationers do not have to wait queue in August... absurd! There is no retention in every day and that investment has been absurd! Worthy not of Vigo Valencia (Valencia's goes with retintín)

  • Great work of engineering which has changed the lives of hundreds of thousands of residents who use it, but over time has been more than small, even with the poor and unfinished expansion. Yet it remains a milestone in modern civil engineering

  • The conversion of a Wahrzeichens-a masterpiece of engineers the impressive cable-stayed bridge over the Bay of Vigo was 1981 released for the traffic. The total length is 1558m and with a main span of 401 m, she held the world record at the opening for multi-lane suspension bridges. Every day, more than 50,000 vehicles cross the bridge, which has become a landmark of Vigo. The expansion to 6 lanes was completed in the January 2018. The bridge has not lost its original character here. "Caps" were used on the existing pylons more inclined ropes were attached to those, keep 2 additional side roads. These lanes run parallel to the existing old 4-lane expressway with a central crash barrier. It is also interesting that during the renovation work traffic remains undisturbed went further about this bridge. Once the new lanes were inaugurated at the beginning of the year, the lanes of the old bridge are service used at the time. The extension of the now 37-year-old cable-stayed bridge perfectly succeeded in not only architecturally esthetic, but also construction represents a logistical feat. So, the landmark of Vigo is well equipped for the future volume of traffic in the region. You need to visit by the way to plan, because the most car trips from Vigo out in the environment inevitably via the Puente de edge.

  • The best bridge of Galicia. The only thing I see wrong, is "widening" you are doing. My opinion is that in a few years should throw away it (or at least to build another) to make a new one that has greater capacity. The AP-9 is already running small...
