Bridge Hengstey BAB 1

One of the most difficult tasks in the construction project Bridge Hengstey BAB 1 was completed.

In the night to 14.02.2020 one of the most difficult tasks in the construction project of the bridge Hengstey BAB 1 was completed.
The central section of the existing bridge in the direction of Cologne, weighing approx. 650 t, was excavated above the 8-track railway system and extended in the longitudinal direction of the bridge. Despite adverse weather conditions, the work was carried out safely and without accidents during several nightly closures.
After the transfer of motorway traffic to this new bridge section and demolition of the old bridge structure in the direction of Cologne, work on the second bridge superstructure can begin in autumn.
A really great team effort of all involved!
