Successful lifting of the new railway bridge

In Riederich, two thick plate bridges with an individual weight of approx. 37 tons were placed on the new abutments. The railway overpass consists of two separate superstructures. Each superstructure is designed as a trough bridge with thick plate. A walkway is attached to one side of each of the two superstructures. The span of the bridge is approx. 6.10 m, the construction height is 0.8 m. Each of the superstructures has a width of 4.48 m. The footpaths have widths of up to 1.19 m.

The bridge sections have been placed on top of addition stacks and remain on these until the bearings have been cast. Afterwards the footpaths were added.

In this state the bridge is now waiting to be moved to its final position together with the two abutments.
