Each of them, is a continuous span made of prestressed concrete 469 meters long in total, divided in 5 single spans 50 + 65 + 85 + 175 + 89 meters long. The two first spans in the Madrid side, were constructed on false-work and the other three spans by succesive cantilever method. Each of the 4 succesive cantilever stretches of 86 meters long, were formed by 18 segments. The typical deck section was a single cell box girder with a variable depth between 3.7 to 4.7 meters and a top slab 10.5 meters wide.
