A Unique FRP Shared Use Bridge Demonstrates Versatile Composite Technology

0 Comments | November 26, 2020

In yet another leap forward in composite pedestrian bridge innovation, FiberCore Europe have manufactured a shared use bridge using the InfraCore® Inside technology with a striking semicircular edge for a railway overpass project in The Netherlands. The bridge is 16.4 metres long and 6.5 metres wide and only weights in at 16.5 tonnes and was installed at nighttime in a single lift in less than 1 hour. The huge advantages in off-site pre-fabrication allows for these extraordinary fast installation times, minimises on-site construction risk and provides more reliability in cost predictions. The use of InfraCore® FRP also means that the structures are lightweight, have a very long life span and are largely maintenance free.
