Taxiway bridge for Fraport expansion

During the night of May 8th - 9th, the first bridge girders were installed for the link that will connect the existing airport facility with the new northwest runway. The precast elements are manufactured by Max Bögl. A total of 409 precast elements will be used on the project. Starting in the autumn of 2011, aircraft will use the two taxiway bridges to cross the A3 motorway and the ICE high-speed rail line to access the new Pier A-Plus.

The bridge elements, which are up to 32 m long and weigh as much as 90 tonnes, are manufactured by Max Bögl in the company’s precast concrete plant in...
