San Francisco Project

Let us see an example in Warren Dean: ' ' A law project hastily was introduced in the State legislature of the state for the member of the house of representatives Wedge Rasp, that would have leasehold the entire pontal the particular ones, under the condition of that each one would conserve, as the forest covering of one room of its areas leasehold. This would be, in agreement declared cynically, a better guarantee for the forest because the state was imcompetent person to protect its reserves ' ' (Dean, 1996:295) history if repeats currently when another Wedge Rasp, Cssio governor Wedge Rasp is favorable to the San Francisco project that will develop the budget of the Paraba in 700 Real million per year according to data of the proper State Secretariat of Hdricos resources. Another curious aspect was the form of approval of the San Francisco Project, it was approved by decree and not for realistic studies through agencies whose purpose is to deal with these subjects, for example ANA (National Water Agency) that according to engineer Joo Abner Guimares, would not approve such project. Therefore, the viability technique is authenticated in many publications, one of them says: ' ' The transposition of the Old Chico is project a politically inconsequential, impracticable, economically socially unjust and ecologically coward. &#039 would be enough one of these four conditions to be true to justify the abandonment of the project; ' The given IBAMA when supplying, fell in contradiction, located same favor supplying given that they recognize 70% of water will be for irrigation and 26% for the supplying of cities, being most to it of destined water dams where if it loses up to 75% for evaporation; 20% of the ground that if it desires to irrigate ' ' they have limitations for use agrcola' ' 62% of ground needs control, because of the strong trend to eroso' '.

Robert Hail Ozrio Engineer

Projected for the engineer Oscar Axe of the Coast, with the contribution of the engineers Jose Filizola and Robert Hail Ozrio de Almeida, were mounted under the supervision of engineer Alceu Moletta. This second bridge was constructed with pioneering technique in the world! Who explains is the engineer Raul Ozrio de Almeida, responsible for the restoration and son of already cited engineer Robert Ozrio, one of the responsible ones for the construction of the workmanship: ‘ ‘ The bridge possesss three great beams. Of the way it supported the biggest weight and it did not have geometry to change the height of it. Therefore, a beam with concretado rocking was constructed, that gave the contrary weight to the one of the train. It was the first time in the world that this concept was utilizado.’ ‘ That is, as at that time the protension concept did not exist, i.e., of previous tensions in the concrete, had been used blocks of concrete in the extremities, for a reason or purpose counterbalance, to leave the tracks in the correct level, preventing that the metallic structure presented bending during the ticket of the train.

The proper American company who constructed the metallic structure demanded of the engineers Brazilians the signature of a responsibility term, therefore never had constructed something thus. Thanks to this pioneirismo, the bridge was overthrown by the state Historic site in 13.08.1976.
