Bridge across the River Vah's Reservoir Hricov

Completed in 2017

The twin bridge is formed by a continuous structure of variable span length. The central spans bridging the River Vah are formed by a box girder of a variable depth from 3.00 to 6.00 m that are segmentally cast in symmetrical cantilevers; the remaining spans have a double tee cross section of a constant depth of 3.00 m. These spans are cast span-by-span on stationary or movable scaffolding.
