DESCRIPTION

Under the Poceirão/Caia high speed railway Concession, the design review of the Civil Engineering Structures was carried out by Cenor. This enterprise has plenty of complex technical and constructive features, not to mention the fact that this is the first project for high speed railway in Portugal. For that reason, a thorough assessment of other similar international structures was essential. Details such as the track-structure interaction or the necessary dynamic analyses performed for train circulation are good examples to emphasise the degree of sophistication related to these works. In general, this stretch extends over 160km, which includes the development of design projects, in their different phases, of 100 overpasses and underpasses and 30 bridges and viaducts structures.
