Built from weathering steel of course
Near the memorial in honor of General Patton, the bridge over the Sûre, which had existed since 1951, was demolished and replaced by a new steel bridge on steel piers. The new bridge is 177 m long, 17 m wide and partly straight and partly curved in plan view. As part of the "Multimodal Transport Hub at Ettelbruck Station" project, the reconstruction of the Patton Bridge will allow buses to be prioritized, an adequate loading gauge for soft mobility, but also the possibility of increasing the railroad loading gauge to comply with the new CFL standards. The bridge is composed of two lanes, a service lane, a pedestrian and bicycle lane, and a dedicated bus lane.
For this bridge with a renowned name, Dillinger supplied approx. 1,210 t of heavy plate in grade S355J2W+N in thicknesses from 8 to 40 mm.
