Night Operation on the A45 Dorlar Viaduct

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.
