Zaldua Square and Autonomía Street, -in Zaldívar, Biscay- separated by a 10 m elevation difference are connected by a staired path starting at Gatikena Crossing until Elizondo Street arriving to Autonomia Street.
The construction of a urban lift is ment to be projected in order to solve this accesibility problem.
The proposed lift starts along with the existing stairs in Elizondo Street at 198,30 m level and it goes up to 209,00 m level.
A straight horizontal runway connects the upper level of the lift with the end of the stair path, arriving to Gatikena Crossing.
Both, the lift-tower and the runway, are prefab metalic structures veiled by a expanded metal mesh.
Tower’s plan dimmensions are 2,80 x 2,60 m, being the inner space dimmensions for the lift-car 2,10 x 1,90 m. Its total height is 14,80 m.
Runway is outer 2,80 m width and inner 2,10 m width. Its total length is 31,20 m, out of two equal 15,60 m parts. Each of these parts rest in both ends of the runway and in a concrete column in the middle of it.
