From Black to Red. The last major restoration
2011 saw the beginning of the last – for the moment – comprehensive programme for conservation, restoration, rehabilitation and consolidation of the Bizkaia Bridge. All the suspension cables holding up the deck were replaced, various components of their structure and of the bracing of the towers were reinforced or replaced and the metal structure painted. The bridge went from coal black to “Somorrostro” red, reflecting the typical colour of the veins of iron in the local mines, the drivers of industrialisation in Bizkaia province in the 19trh century.
