In the new basque railway network section Tolosa - Hernialde, FHECOR Ingenieros Consultores has designed four new viaducts: Salubita, Oaska, San Esteban and Luzuriaga.

The viaducts consist of a post-tensioned continuous box section beam to which the piers are rigidly connected. The deck is 3.94m depth and 14.0m width.

The main characteristics are listed bellow.
Salubita viaduct
o Total length: 141.0 m, spans 34.0 - 57.0 - 50.6 m
o Pier height: 25.0 - 30.0 m
o Longitudinal STU devices are placed in both abutments in order to transmit horizontal loads to foundations without fixing point.

Oaska viaduct
o Total length: 96.7m, spans 48.35 +48.35m
o Pier height: 21 m
o Longitudinal STU devices are placed in both abutments in order to transmit horizontal loads to foundations without fixing point.

San Esteban viaduct
o Total length: 230.0 m, spans 40 + 3x50 + 40 m
