The lateral stiffness against buckling effect of top chords is achieved by the stiffness of the transversal portal frame formed by the bottom concrete deck and the lateral trusses.

The spans range from 20 to 32m and the piers-towers have two intermediate levels for the corresponding connections between sections of ramp.
