Preserving the Bizkaia Bridge. 2018

Preserving the Bizkaia Bridge involves a series of partial interventions every year to conserve and maintain different parts of the structure that are essential both for public use of the site and to ensure that it can work properly and uninterruptedly.

2018 saw, among other measures, work to restore the foundation blocks to which the steel cables supporting the bridge on the left bank (Portugalete) are anchored; repairs to the lifts going up to the panoramic walkway; technological changes to the operation of the carriage that drags the gondola from one bank to the other (variators); renewal of the deck and preventive maintenance on the towers.
