Description

Prague Ring Road Phase 512 - Manufacturing of the largest Matiere arches in Europe

This section of motorway is recently commenced construction and will significantly improve the highway network around Prague by connecting the D1 Motorway intersection in the east to the suburb of Jesenice in the west, where it connects with section 513 of the Prague Ring Road. The total length of this section is 8.75km and incorporates 21 bridges.

ABM were part of a specimen design devised by local consultant Pragoprojekt and following the successful installation of Matiere green bridges elsewehere on the Prague Ring Road, have been employed by main contractor Metrostav to construct two similar structures on this phase. The 310m2 x 91m2 twin span arches which are both approximately 50m in length, have an overall span of 40m which puts these arches amongst the largest ever constructed in the world.

In April 2009, ABM commenced production of the precast elements including the massive 310m2 roof. Two moulds which were fabricated in the UK have been employed to carry out the production of 80 roof units in a very tight time schedule. The first structure SO207 was installed in June 2009.
