Two bridge decks for pedestrians
The bridge traps are positioned one above the other with the master cylinders in the RAM housing driving the top deck. The lower deck is driven by means of tension cylinders on the upper deck via steel cables. In this way both bridge decks can be opened simultaneously, but it is also possible to open only the lower deck in case of low ships. The bridge decks have an aluminum walking floor. The main steel construction is completely concealed with stainless steel and aluminum decorative panels (cladding) and equipped with lighting.
Transport & Assembly
Assembly works were carried out in densely populated urban areas on one of England’s largest construction projects at the time. Carrying out the work in the vicinity of and in close collaboration with major civil contracting parties other contractors from various other disciplines was therefore one of the biggest challenges on this project.
