Two societies are inextricably linked thanks to him. On one side is Resistencia, Chaco and on the other Corrientes , province of the same name. The General Belgrano Bridge is a viaduct located on RN 16, a few kilometers from the mouth of the Paraguay River. This is the first link to settle on the Paraná River and the second link between Mesopotamia Argentina and the rest of the country . In the latter case, the highest place is the subfluvial Tunnel Raúl Uranga — Carlos Sylvestre Begnis . It was inaugurated on May 10, 1973 by de facto president Alejandro Agustín Lanusse . While his name was chosen in honor of the lawyer and military officer Manuel Belgrano .
Its creation had a high impact on the economies of the regions , empowering the Chaco capital as a communications hub of northeast Argentina. In addition, it is a remarkable tourist attraction for the anecdotes behind its construction and its dimensions and engineering. Also, it enabled a much more fluid interaction between the localities it comprises. Around 18,000 vehicles travel it daily, forming part of the life routine of the natives . It is that many groups of workers and students live in one place and carry out their activities in the other.
An old-dated link
The relationship between Resistance and Corrientes began to unfold during the first decades of the 20th century . It was after Chaco became a province. From there, citizens of both coasts started an integration process that continues to date. However, this situation was much more complex prior to the building of the viaduct. In this way, those who wanted to cross the Paraná River had to do so through a raft or a boat called El vaporcito . This entailed a tedious process of long waiting, difficult travel and infrastructure constraints. So the need arose to devise a project that would unite both places . But mainly that it annulled the isolation in which the town of Correntina and Misiones lived from the rest of the country.
Social and economic progress
The concretion represented a claim pursued by business and industrial associations in both territories . So, in the 1960s it was decided to launch it under the developmental government of Arturo Frondizi . The aim was to strengthen regional economies and facilitate distances with Mesopotamia . However, local finances were not enough to address it and an interprovincial agreement had to be signed. Subsequently, the same was done with Nación for the financing of the work.
The work began at the end of 1968 and was in charge of the architect Jean Courbon . He was a French specialist in pressed concrete works with a long career in Europe and Central America. The project took seven years and 700 people worked with dedication to make it a reality . One that until this day symbolizes a social good and a testimonial monument .
