During the night of 24th to 25th of October 2015, the main bicycle track from Westenholte, Kampen and Stadshagen to the city centre in Zwolle was completed by placing the “Blalobridge”. Many people witnessed this spectacular event, despite the late hour.
From 20:00 hrs. the road under the bridge (the ‘Blaloweg”) was closed for traffic in order to start rigging the cranes and position the container supports. After the ramps for the SPMT’s were laid down and the last train passed on the adjacent railway bridge, transport of the bridge by SPMT’s could start around 22.30 hrs. , For this purpose Wagenborg used 2 x 6 axle-lines SPMT’s. Around midnight two 200 tonnes mobile cranes lifted the impressive bridge deck (51 meters long, 7,5 meters wide, 7 meters high and weighing 100 tons). Around 01.00 hrs the bridge deck was placed at height on container supports by SPMT’s. The SPMT’s transported the bridge section to its final destination. The mobile cranes lifted the bridge sections from the SPMT’s onto foundation. By executing this spectacular hoist, Wagenborg completed the main bicycle track at around 02:00 hrs.
As of December the bicycle bridge will be ready for use.
