Brazil: Concrete bridge for the Metro in Novo Hamburgo

In the Brazilian state of Rio Grande do Sul, Line 1 of the Trensurb, which already today connects Porto Alegre, Canoas, Esteio, Sapucaia do Sul, and Sao Leopoldo, is being extended. It is planned to connect the city of Novo Hamburgo to the rail network by a track section 9.3 km long, by the latest at the end of January 2012.

The new track section between Sao Leopoldo and Novo Hamburgo will be guided across two parallel concrete bridges. Stops are planned every 1.5 ...
