The construction of a new viaduct is being set in motion in Madrid already. A viaduct is another word for bridge in Latin. The bridge will be short of a kilometer in length and could possibly be viewed as one of the future landmarks of Spanish high-speed line.
Adif has started work on the deck of a new viaduct over the Almonte river which will form part of the Madrid-Extremadura high-speed line.
The viaduct will be just short of a kilometre in length once completed and is being viewed as one of the future landmarks of Spanish high-speed rail engineering.
Funding for the project has come from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and the EU’s TEN-T programme.
The 6.3 km Madrid-Extremadura line runs through the municipalities of Garrovillas and Santiago del Campo to Extremadura on the Portuguese border, connecting the region to the Iberian Peninsula high-speed network.
