Following yesterday’s successful final push, the railway bridge over the river Neckar, which is currently under construction in Stuttgart, Germany, reached its final position. During the bridge launch, the last 15 m to the shore side of Bad Cannstatt were completed. A total of 3100 tons of steel were pushed forward across the river.
In the next few months, the remaining steel box girders will be assembled at the two ends of the bridge. The “steel sails” bridge will then reach a length of 345 m. Afterwards, concreting of the carriageway slab and further work for the railway engineering will follow.
The new 4-track railway bridge is part of the Stuttgart 21 project and will be connected to the city’s main station.
