Wagenborg Nedlift Skidding 1700t Road Bridge over Railway in Germany – Time Lapse Video
In 1870 the railway between Bingen and Worms became operational. The railway underpass to the town of Sprendlingen was also built at that time. With the modern road and rail traffic the very narrow passage became outdated and was in dire need of replacement.
The new passage construction for the new and wider access road to Sprendlingen has been built next to the existing railway line. A colossus of over 1,700 tons of reinforced concrete! To get it in place, the jacking and sliding specialists at Wagenborg Nedlift took action.
Using the skidding system developed by Wagenborg Engineering, the viaduct was shifted over a distance of 30 meters in six hours to its final position in the railway track.
After a track closure of less than a week, rail traffic will be resumed. Construction works on the access roads will take some more time.
