The Alameda Bridge spans 130 meters (426.4 feet) over the former bed of the diverted Turia River to connect the university district in the north with Valencia's old town off the southern banks, thus providing an all-important pedestrian crossing point for the area. A subway station, aligned on the same longitudinal axis directly below the bridge was constructed at the same time.
The platforms can be reached via elevators housed in the buttresses of the bridge and via escalators and stairs that are accessed through mechanical doors. When open, these doors frame the entrances; when closed, they are flush with the paving, thus sealing the station. At night, light filters up through the glass inlay to gently illuminate the bridge.
