Wagenborg Nedlift Removes the Cross Border Bridge over the River Oder – Gallery – Video

The railway bridges over the river Oder at Küstrin, on the German border with Poland were built in 1926.

In the past they connected Berlin with East and West Prussia as part of the so called Ostbahn. This railway is still important as an alternative route for the Berlin – Warsaw route. But the old bridges have been taken out of service at the end of their technical life and at the end of 2020.

They have been replaced by a single span, brand new bridge.

The first part of the renovation operation involved, among other things, the removal of the two old bridges by means of a sailing operation.

Wagenborg Nedlift’s bridge specialists use a variety of equipment for this purpose, including a 250t jacking system, a carriage system, the Modular Support System and SPMTs.  A pontoon from Nedlift’s water transport specialist sister company Wagenborg Towage Service, carried the weight of the bridges to the riverbank despite the low water level of the River Oder.
