Portuguese Railways – Beira Alta line

In the elements studied on the coverages, we use the curve and fixation procedures, providing a higher aerodynamic and bracing required for a good dynamic resistance of these elements.
There was also concern about the process of framing it in economic terms, includinf the for production costs, such as manufacturing processes, considering the different scales of the different stations.
Each unit is supported by two metallic columns, away from the axis about five meters, placed on white concrete bases.
In the mold of formwork and its concrete implementation, should be provided places for rainwater to flow and electrical cables to pass.
The finishing coat of apparent concrete elements should be a protective varnish.
