Meuse bridge Roermond

General information

In order to replace the bearings of the Meuse bridge in Roermond, CT deBoer was commissioned to design and deliver an accessibility platform. We designed a overhead crane which could run ocross the Mease bridge, while a platform hangs below the bridge deck. Both overhead cranes where used to lift materials down. From the platform, all 72 rubber bearings could be replaced without holding back any traffic.
