Puente de Chacao is currently the largest bridge construction site in South America. The multiple-span suspension bridge with main spans of 1’055 and 1’155 m is progressing in the construction of all three towers and the anchor blocks. Following the collaboration of the Chilean and the Swiss National Groups for the Third International Bridge Congress in 2020 and the joint work in the Task Groups of Commission 5 Existing Bridges, the Chilean NG Chair Mathias Valenzuela and the Ministerio de Obras P├║blicas received Swiss IABSE Member Kristian Schellenberg for a technical visit on site, on 11 January 2023. Those who were present at the site visit included: Matias Valenzuela (IABSE Chile chair); Jairo Quinteros (IABSE Chile member); Carlo Castilla (Fiscal Inspector Chacao  Bridge); Kattya Adasme (Responsible of south area Chacao Bridge) - presenting in the video; Felipe Romero (Construction Inspector Chacao Bridge).

Both NGs collaborated in order to improve the knowledge of 'Bridge Engineering', and set up an online event on 24 March 2023, which focused on three topics: design, construction and maintenance. Such events bridge the knowledge gap, and also help in promoting IABSE's activities to all. The Speakers were Dr. Matias Valenzuela S., Mg Marcelo Marquez, Mg Mary Gonzalez.
