This is a video of 3 maniacs driving from Petrópolis to Itaipava (i think), in the BR-040.

BR-040 links the city of Rio to Brasília, passing through Belo Horizonte.

[BR] Brazilian Highways | Rodovias Brasileiras

Hey guys,

this is the second thread about Brazilian Highways. Many Brazilian forumers sent their pics to me and I put all together now for you. Thanks for all that contributed for make it happen!

Brazil adopts federalism, so there is a federal highway net owned by union and each state has its own highway net. What you are going to see here is the federal highway net. It uses the innitials "BR".

There aren't all Brazilian higways here because we don't have pics of all of them. There is also some roads of federal net. Anyway this thread gives an idea of the issue.

Major cities are related and there is algo a GE image for each road.

So let's start viewing these images!

How KM of motorways are being build in Brazil? BTW, I think Brazil should have used "autoestrada" like Portugal for their motorways rather than "rodovia" because "rodovia" can be any type of road.

Nice pics man, but isn't there already another thread about Brazilian highways? Is it possible to merge the two?

-edit- The Thread/country finder link for Brazil doesn't work. What happened to that thread?

Sorry, I don't have idea of how many KMs are being build in Brazil at the present time. Probably some other Brazilian forumer will clear it up for you.

About the word "rodovia". Yes, I agree. That's used to describe any kind of road in Brazilian Portuguese. The word "estrada" is used also for any kinf of road in Brazilian Portuguese too. I guess in Brazilian Portuguese there is no other word used for highways, freeways, autobahns, etc...

I used "rodovia" because it's the most used word by Brazilian Federal Highway Police and others authorities from Brazilian Transports Ministery.

I guess it is. You check on the first page of this section you will notice second edition threads of many countries.

Thanks for the comments, guys!

Amazon River bridges?

One thought that I had not long ago was whether or not Brazil has any active plans to build one or more major bridges across the Amazon, something that would usefully connect the main part of their country to their far northwest, the rest of northern South America and perhaps someday beyond.



Any thoughts?

Mike

Man, look at the sattelite night photos of Amazonia. There's a few city lights, all you see is a dark mass. Amazonia has two big cities, Manaus and Belem but these cities are a dot in a immense territory.

There is a 3505 meters (a little bit more than 2 miles) bridge being built across Rio Negro river (Amazon's branch) at Manaus. Check it out:

A Ponte sobre o Rio Negro terá um comprimento total de 3.505 metros, incluindo aí as rampas de acesso nos pontos de chegada e saída em Manaus e em Iranduba. Em termos de vãos, serão 73 vãos, sendo que estes vãos terão – em sua grande maioria, uma extensão 45 metros entre cada pilar.

A extensão do trecho estaiado – onde estarão afixados os canos de sustentação, chamados estais, será de 400 metros. Ainda nesse trecho estarão os dois maiores vãos da ponte, em sua parte central, com 200 metros de comprimento, sendo um de cada lado da torre central, em formato de diamante, que terá exatos 182 metros de altura.

A largura total da ponte será de 20,70 metros, o que disponibilizará quatro faixas de tráfego – duas de cada pistas, além de passeio para pedestres em ambos os lados da pista. No trecho estaiado, a largura será um pouco menor, da ordem de 20,60 metros, por conta da colocação dos estais, dos cabos de fixação e apoio nesse trecho.

A altura do vão central será de 55 metros, contados do tabuleiro da ponte até o bloco do pilar maior na cota 30, ou seja, na maior enchente do rio. Na vazante, esse número aumenta. O secretário de Infra-Estrutura, Marco Aurélio de Mendonça, disse, exemplificando, que “na hipótese de que o rio tenha uma vazante de 10 metros, esse número subirá para 65 metros”. Esse número permite que transatlânticos, que navios de grande porte possam passar por sob a ponte e chegar até o arquipélago das Anavilhanas ou outro destino qualquer, sem nenhuma preocupação. Essa cota poderia ser bem menor, reduzindo consideravelmente o custo da obra, mas por determinação do Governo do Estado essa cota foi mantida para garantir total segurança e tranqüilidade para a navegação a montante da ponte, ou seja, em direção às cabeceiras do rio.

Voltando a falar da torre central, seu formato em diamante será o primeiro a ser construído no Brasil, com uma altura de 182 metros, o que equivale a um prédio de 60 andares. “Uma pessoa que se posicionasse no ponto mais alto desse pilar, teria uma visão bem abrangente do cenário local, talvez até do arquipélago das Anavilhanas de um lado, e do Encontro das Águas a jusante”, explicou o secretário.

Esse vão central – com 400 metros de extensão, terá o apoio de 104 estatais, que são os cabos de sustentação. Aponte toda terá 426 vigas pré-moldadas. Os locais de acesso, de um lado e outro, aqui em Manaus e no Iranduba, foram escolhidos a permitir uma inclinação mínima da rampa, que ficará em 3,01% - no máximo, o que permitirá o tráfego de carros e cargas de qualquer porte, como por exemplo de tijolos, sem os problemas verificados atualmente quando do desembarque das balsas, cuja inclinação não é a ideal para esse tipo de carga.
