ISC has for the Municipality of Høje Taastrup designed a new pedestrian steel bridge crossing Roskildevej at Baldersbrønde. The original steel bridge was hit by a truck where the driver had forgotten to lower the crane. Thus a replacement of the bridge was necessary.

ISC´s task comprised all phases of consultancy from the removal of the destroyed bridge till the new bridge was in place. ISC investigated to determine a condition of the damaged bridge stating the expected remaining lifetime for the trucker drivers insurance company.

ISC also conducted an assessment of the condition of the existing foundations and design of the renovation project for these foundations for them to be used for the new bridge.

ISC designed the new bridge in steel. The bridge is 51 m long and 2 m wide and has a total weight of 41 ton.

The project planning commenced in May 2008 and in June 2008 tender was given to contractors alongside the renovation of the foundations. In August 2008 the bridge was contracted and commenced being manufactured by Bladt Industries A/S in Aalborg.

December 14th 2008 it was transported to the building site in 9 sections – 3 bridge section, 2 supports and 4 staircase sections. Mounting of the bridge was conducted in the night in only 6 hours with minimal disturbance of the traffic.

The bridge was designed according to the same principals and cross sections as the destroyed bridge, however, with some minor modifications to improve the structures ability to resist corrosion. The new bridge has also been given a slightly curved shape and some bracing between the steel frames to harmonize better with the design of the intermediate supports.

One of the advantages of using steel for these types of bridges is of course that the bridge can be mounted with very little disturbance of the traffic. However, the accident also showed that the impact of the accident could have been much more significant – had it not been a steel bridge with plastic characteristics. There were no crashing of heavy elements if it had been a heavy concrete bridge.

The total cost was approx. DDK 3.5 mill.

Mestervig Airport

The AFIS Tower built in Mestersvig Airport in Northeast Greenland in 1977, was a special challenge as it had to be built in just 3 months during the summer time to late October. The tower was designed as “builder’s element kit” which had to be transported to Mestersvig Airport by the one ship that arrived to the East coast every summer.

Odins Bridge

The new bridge crossing the Odense Canal on the island Funen Denmark is named Odins Bridge. Odin was a god in Nordic mythology and gave the name to the city of Odense. The bridge has closed a long missed gap in the infrastructure of the road system surrounding Odense which is the third largest city in Denmark.

6 Bridges To The Island Of The New Opera House, CPH

The Dock Island by the Naval Shipyard used to belong to the Danish Naval Fleet. In connection with the plan for locating the new Opera House, the Dock Island was separated from the adjacent islands called the South Island and the North Island by 2 artificial canals.

North River Bridge, Thule

The new North River Bridge is supposedly the most northerly built bridge of that size at the latitude of 77°. The bridge with 60 m span crosses the North River, which runs parallel with the runway in Thule Airport. The bridge replaces a shorter 23 m span truss bridge, which was destroyed during a flood in the autumn of 2001.
