Macalloy Engineers Site Visit to Portugal April 2023

Macalloy Engineers Site Visit Portugal April Alexandre Barbosa Borges Glulam Timber Stayed Bridge

Macalloy recently undertook a site visit of the pre-erection of a Glulam Timber Stayed Bridge in Portugal, on behalf of Alexandre Barbosa Borges (ABB). Two  Macalloy site engineers undertook the successful training of the operatives on the assembly and use of the Macalloy TechnoTensioner.

The new bridge, named Trancao Ciclovia Passadicos e Ponte is part of the pedestrian/cycling circuit around the Tagus estuary on the outskirts of Lisbon, and utilises our M64 460 Galvanised Steel Tension Rods painted to a pure white finish. The work is progressing well and is programmed to open in August 2023.
