The 375-meter-long bridge replaces the existing bridge over the Aller that is part of the DB railroad line from Wunsdorf to Bremerhaven. The slender trough bridge is notable for its construction, which employs select materials and blends harmoniously with the surrounding flatlands along the Aller river. The bridge was built in eight phases using the incremental launching method. Dillinger delivered around 700 tons of steel, including higher-strength high-quality steel, for the prize-winning bridge.
Engineering Prize of the German Steel 2017
The railway bridge over the Aller river near Verden, Germany was recognized with the prize because of its design quality, innovation and high acceptance by the public. “In addition to the quick progress of the construction, the high production and assembly quality speaks for the efficiency of the steel bridge construction,” the members of the bauforumstahl jury panel said in their explanatory statement.
