On April 6, 2017 during the ‘ESTA Users Night and Award dinner’, the winners are announced. Wagenborg project ‘positioning footbridge and elevator shaft is the winner of the award in the category ‘Cranes telescopic lifting capacity ≤ 120 tonnes’.

December, 2016, Wagenborg positioned a new footbridge and elevator shaft underneath the ‘Nelson Mandelabrug’ in Zoetermeer (the Netherlands). An extremely complex job, since the location was very narrow. However, the Wagenborg Engineering department, in close co-operation with the client, succeeded in developing an excellent method of executing this job; functioning perfectly in practice.

Last year, Wagenborg project ‘Kruisvaarbrug Utrecht’ won an ESTA award in the ‘Transport’ category. For this transport, Wagenborg developed an alternative solution: a specially designed support construction to transport the bridge section in upright position.
