In Germany, many infrastructural works are currently under way. We are contributing to this with our equipment and expertise. This is also the case in Hamburg where our customer Thömen Spedition GmbH & Co. KG was given the challenge of installing a temporary pedestrian bridge.
The Berliner Tor metro and railway station in Hamburg has been undergoing renovation since 2015. Due to the expansion of the railway network to and from Hamburg Central Station and the growing number of passengers, pedestrian bridges and crossings were necessary.
In cooperation with Thomas Meyer, one of our Lifting Experts, the wooden bridge with steel structure and frame was installed using our 4 point spreader system with a WLL of 110T. This had a dimension of 13,5m x 5,0m. During the long-term project we delivered the same system with the same WLL a few weeks later, but with a size of 11m x 5m.
The challenge was in the tight time lock. For the placement of the pedestrian bridge, the main road and the railway were temporarily closed off. Of course, they had to be fully accessible again on time, according to schedule. Thanks to the smooth cooperation, the project was completed on time.
Thomas was involved in the project planning and implementation on behalf of LGH from the start of the project. Can you also use Lifting Expertise or equipment? Please contact us.
