Pilot project near Neumarkt in Upper Palatinate

Intelligent segmental bridge using self-compacting ­concrete

Near Grießelbach in the Neumarkt district, the road St 2220 was reconstructed to overpass the federal road B 229 without intersection. The rerouting was achieved by means of a bridge structure built according to an innovative construction principle. The aim of this innovative construction principle was to keep the construction period for the completion of the structure as short as possible and to reduce the construction-related disruptions of the traffic flow. At the same time, the upkeep was to be minimized considerably compared to standard structures. The main feature of the construction...
