In the Beginning… There is the Earth
Description of project:
Within the framework of the extension to the Strasbourg tram system, it is being considered to construct a 280 m long bridge across the Rhine, between Strasbourg and Kehl in Germany.
Each of the bridge’s two spans will be a bow-string. The two decks will be assembled at the factory and then brought to the site on barges. The trusses will be assembled on land. The bridge deck will be put in place in two halves.
The compact Rhine gravels present on the river bed will make it possible to base the central support on a large block protected against undermining. On the banks, since the same gravels are here buried beneath loose soils, the abutments will be based on piles.
