MOVING A NEW RAILWAY BRIDGE INTO POSITION WITH THE HYDRAULIC PRESS METHOD

NEUBAU EINER EISENBAHNUEBERFUEHRUNG IM DURCHPRESSVERFAHREN BEI GLEICHZEITIGEM ABBRUCH EINES BESTEHENDEN BRUECKENBAUWERKES

The article describes the renewal of a railway bridge over a roadway under very difficult conditions. The curved bridge carries the electrified double-track main railway line between Augsburg and Ulm. Immediately adjacent to the bridge are two sets of switches which caused the bridge-builders considerable difficulty. The new, widened road passes under the railway line at an angle. A procedure had to be found which would meet the DB's need for minimal interference with train services on this heavily worked route. The problem was solved by resorting to hydraulic presses for moving the new bridge into position. While the new structure was being advanced, the old bridge was simultaneously demolished. The method here described is a safe, economical answer to the increasingly frequent need for widening and renewing existing railway overpass structures on heavily-worked routes.
