As a consequence of this project in Madeira, a pedestrian crossing in reinforced concrete was demolished in order to enable the execution of the last section of the platform of the V2A viaduct. Demolition works were divided into four stages: Assembly of the support towers to ensure stability of the whole structure during cutting operations and the removal of the resulting concrete pieces; Cutting of the platform into several pieces using diamond wire; Suspension and removal of pieces with an 80 ton auto-crane; Grinding the concrete at an appropriate area of the construction site and transporting it to a landfill site.
