Spectacular lifting of the cross beam in axis 11

During the night from Tuesday to Wednesday, another section of the Dorlar viaduct of A45 motorway was erected.

Using a 650t crawler crane, the supporting cross beam was successfully lifted into axis 11.
The installation team only had a time window of four hours for the total operation, as the adjacent rail traffic was blocked during this time period.

In the two days that followed, the four longitudinal girders extending across the Lahn River were also lifted.

Beginning of the construction of the 2nd construction phase

The 2nd construction phase of the Heidingsfeld motorway viaduct was launched at the beginning of this week.

Construction began with the build-up of the foundations in the form station, on which the first steel components are to be laid in beginning of November.
