In fact, as it can be seen from figure 1, we have mostly ground and a very low level of the water on the left of the first pylon. Thus, there, the use of temporary supports could be economically viable.
Instead, for what regards the other two spans, the level of the water is higher, thus, building provisional support could be expensive and consequently a cantilever method would be preferable.
Therefore the proposed solution will be: Continuarea
