The Swedish Railway Authorities, Western Region (Banverket, Västre Region), have had two new bridges built on the rail line from Aamaal to Mellerud along the shore of the lake Vänern. The two new bridges replace the existing worn out bridges crossing the canals of Dalslands-Kanal and Gamla Segelleden respectively.

MTHøjgaard constructed the bridgesin a turnkey contract. ISC has prepared the detailed design for the bridges.

Bridge crossing Dalslandskanal:

The bridge consists of a steel swing bridge and two fixed approach spans. The steel swing bridge has two spans, each with a span of 20 m.

The approach spans consist of two simply supported trough-shaped concrete bridges spanning 18 m and 40 m respectively. The approaches carry ballasted tracks. The total length of the bridge including the abutments is 128.5 m.

The foundation conditions were complicated, with soft sediments overlaying sloping bedrock. The bridge foundations, therefore, were constructed as deep foundations, cast underwater inside sheet pile cofferdams. The size of the bridge foundations was governed by the load of ice pressure on the piers.

Bridge crossing Gamla Segelleden:

The bridge is a trough-shaped concrete bridge continuously over two spans. The bridge carries ballasted tracks. The span is 2 x 18.5 m, the total length including the abutments is 47.2 m. The bridge is founded directly on the bedrock.

The new bridge is placed in the same alignment as the existing bridge. The new bridge was cast on scaffolding next to the old bridges. The old bridge was demolished during a short interruption of the rail traffic, and the new bridge was slid into its final position.

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.

Service Centre – Hundige, Denmark

The new service centre in Hundige supplements the existing operational preparation facilities in Taastrup, in such a way that DSB city trains in the future are capable of delivering a better city train product for their passengers.

Baldersbrønde Pedestrian Steel Bridge

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.

Pedestrian Bridges, Gladsaxe Ring Road And Fredericia

The pedestrian bridge crossing Gladsaxe Ring Road next to Buddinge has been established to obtain a safe way to Gladsaxe Senior School. Gladsaxe Ring Road is a four-lane road with a central strip, which is why the bridge is carried out with a span of 2 x 17 m.

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.

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.
