WIENER REICHSBRUECKE UEBER DEN DONAUSTROM - BERGUNG DES EINGESTUERZTEN TRAGWERKES

Following a report on the situation after the collapse of the Reichsbruecke Bridge on 1st August 1976, the emergency measures devised by the technical staff are described. The salvage of the bridge was undertaken in two stages. Stage 1 - the raising of the left bank end span, which made it possible to open a temporary shipping lane. Stage 2 - clearance of the 240 M wide central span. The pulling equipment is described in detail; this consisted mainly of vsl plant as well as the necessary hydraulic control gear and was installed on tensioning foundation blocks already erected. /TRRL/
