New bridge construction method
A world premiere in Austria: A new bridge construction technique was developed at TU Wien and has now been successfully implemented by ASFINAG in the construction of the Fürstenfeld expressway, S7.
This new bridge construction method consists in building the bridge girders in a vertical position and in rotating the bridge girders into the final horizontal position. The span of the bridge girders is reduced by the compression struts, which enables considerable savings in construction materials.
