The Old Bridge over the Danube River in Bratislava, Slovakia – New Bridge

Completed in 2016

The bridge, which transfers the tram public transport across the river, consists of a continuous truss structure of six spans of lengths from 32 to 137 meters. The tram traffic is situated between truss girders; bicycle and pedestrian lanes are located on the overhangs. The superstructure is progressively assembled on the river bank and then is incrementally launched into the design position. Static effects in the launched cantilever are reduced by a temporary support situated on the vessel.
