Competition design Ney & Partners for Metro do Porto,  Porto (PT)

Ney & Partners together with Estrutovia participated in the international competition for the design of a new bridge over the Douro for Metro do Porto. The new river crossing will offer a high level connection for pedestrians and cyclists as well as a new Metro line, connecting Vila Nova de Gaia with Porto. The project scope, starting from a new underground metro station in the north reaching to a new station on the south bank, measures 980 m long and includes a bridge of 680m with an arch of 300 m span. This innovatively engineered lightweight steel bridge reduces CO2 emission by 50 % compared to a traditional concrete design, while doubling the speed of construction on site as well. In collaboration with, José Soarez Architects, Alvaro Manso, DataGeo, EerDesign and Tractebel.
