The structural solution consists of 2 steel lattice girders connected at the bottom by a composite slab and restrained at the top by steel elements. The lattice girder comprises a span of 37,5m between supports. The access ramps, with lengths of about 105m and 122m, comprise, in general, spans of 7,5m. The reinforced concrete piers have regular and simple cross-sections.
