Only ten minutes from the financial center of the Spanish capital and located south of La Moraleja and north of IFEMA, Valdebebas is an innovative project that aims to be the urban extension of Madrid. Never forgetting the importance of the environment, it has 49 urban parks and around 500 hectares of green spaces. Great care has been taken in designing the development, with mixed-use land zoning as a hallmark. Residential zoning (open and protected housing) has been mixed with service areas, hotels, commercial and office space. At present, thousands of families are already living in the new neighborhood of the capital.
Situated strategically, it is also surrounded by major roadways such as the M-40, M-11, R-2 and M-12 linking the new T-4 Madrid-Barajas airport with the center of Madrid.

Two bridges over the M-40 have already been built for the Town Council connecting the existing roundabouts in the Sanchinarro suburb with two other roundabouts in the western area of Valdebebas. The building typology of these structures has been solved with great lights, so that conditions affecting traffic on the M-40 during construction were minimized.
The upper crossings on the R-2 are intended to connect the town center of Valdebebas with the adjacent neighborhoods of the North: the West crossing allows a connection with El Encinar de los Reyes and the East Pass with the future development of the Solana de Valdebebas. A crossing under the R-2 has also been built to the east.
The central bridge that is being built the M-12 is a 150 meter single arched cantilever bridge, which is being called a model of urban design and will become an identifying landmark for Valdebebas and the city from Madrid.
Valdebebas’s connection to Plaza de Castilla, the A-1 and A-2 motorways and the M-40 came about through changes to the M-11. This was previously a three lane road which ran from the Hortaleza district of Madrid to the Ermita de Barajas roundabout. The changes included the widening of the road to four lanes and the creation of slip roads on both sides that help traffic enter and exit the M11, restructuring the accesses to the Exhibition Sites.
