Alameda Bridge and Subway Station



The Alameda Bridge spans 130 meters (426.4 feet) over the former bed of the diverted Turia River to connect the university district in the north with Valencia's old town off the southern banks, thus providing an all-important pedestrian crossing point for the area. A subway station, aligned on the same longitudinal axis directly below the bridge was constructed at the same time. The two elements have been treated as independent urban features, with organized sets of ramps and stairways providing indirect connections between them. An open station was proposed in the original competition design, with access at the north and south ends of the new bridge. After awarded the first prize, the design was modified to cover the entire station while creating an open space that would emphasize the line to the park.
