MULTI-PURPOSE REICHSBRUECKE IS READY TO OPEN ON TIME

This article describes the 864 M long, 26 M wide crossing of the Danube and adjacent flood relief channel. It consists of a prestressed concrete box girder superstructure constructed mainly by balanced cantilevers. Beneath the six-lane highway the bridge's twin concrete boxes house metro tracks and a station. Separate cycle tracks and footpaths are cantilevered from both sides. The construction of the boxed concrete piles for supporting the nine concrete piers is described, and reference is made to the use of bentonite for waterproofing the sheet piling of the cofferdam.
