Wooden walkway

Coastal path build: Longest structure of this style SOURCE: Amber International

THE FIRST five sections of the wooden walkway that will be installed on the Guadalhorce riverbed in Málaga, have already left Asturias, where they are being manufactured by the company Media Madera Ingenieros Consultores. 

These sections of the bridge are due to arrive in the capital on Thursday with work to begin immediately with hopes to have the entire structure assembled by the end of December. Europe’s longest structure of this style will be 270 meters in length, with 4.3 meters in width all distributed in six spans.

The project, which is part of the Coastal Path, is jointly financed between the Diputación de Málaga and the City Council of the capital and involves an investment of €1,598,894.99.

The company Obras Generales del Norte ( Ogensa ) completed all civil works prior to the installation of the catwalk. 

Demolitions, earthworks and excavations have already been carried out, as well as the foundations for the placement of the concrete pillars eleven meters high above the level of the river bed on which the gangway will sit.
