Single-lift steel structure for cycle path bridge

On February 20th the time had come: the largest segments of the new foot and cycle path bridge over Heilbronn main station were lifted into place. The two side parts were previously pre-assembled outside the railway premises. The segments, each weighing 28 t, were then lifted into place within five hours using a mobile crane. The base points are clamped into the abutment bases with prepared anchor rods. The bridge deck and suspension will be installed later, as well as the paint coating will be applied.

The bridge with a total length of 183 m will span the railway site on a total of three intermediate supports from autumn 2021.
