Excursion on day 2

09.30 Start excursion by bus to the bridges on the Albert Canal, Belgium – start location: Vertigo Building on TU/e campus

Three building sites are visited: the bridge BR08 in Zutendaal, the bridge BR32 in Ham (Kwaadmechelen) and the bridge BR36 in Eindhout. The bridges are under construction but in different construction phases. These three road bridges on the Albert Canal are part of a project with the aim to increase the clearance height under the bridges along the whole of the Albert Canal. The project was commissioned by Vlaamse Waterweg to the joint-venture Via T-Albert in the form of a PPP-contract for the design, building, financing and maintaining of the bridges.

The bridge type of these bridges is similar: a steel bowstring bridge with steel arches coming together in the central part of the arch. The deck consists of steel main and transverse girders with a concrete deck plate on top of it. The deck and the arches are connected by slender full steel hangers.

The excursion will be guided by the contractor and will be presented partly in Dutch, partly in English language. Participants have to wear sturdy shoes. Shoes, helmets and safety vests will be provided. The excursion is organized in collaboration with FRANKI CONSTRUCT NV. The excursion includes lunch near Geel, Belgium.

More detailed information on the excursion and on the project is given on this pase.

15.30 Arrival at Eindhoven – End
