Third Tejo Crossing

The Third Tejo Crossing (Terceira Travessia do Tejo in portugues and commonly abbreviated as TTT) is a project for a road and railway crossing over the Tejo river, with the aim of connecting the city of Lisbon, in the North margin, to the Paeninsula of Setúbal, in the South margin. It is part of the construction of the new Lisbon-Madrid and Lisbon-Sevilla high-speed railway line, called RAVE. The crossing has a length of approximately 15 kilometers. Its towers have a height of 198 meters, making it one of Portugal’s highest structures. The cable-stayed bridge spans 540m. The road will be on the top part of the deck with three lanes in each direction, while the railway will be contained within the concrete truss.

Developed as part of a team while working at Dissing+Weitling Architecture in Copenhagen, Denmark.
