Žďákovský bridge - continuation of work in 2016

February 24, 2016

The project involves total repair of the bridge with complete removal of the poor structure of the bridge surface, including part of the sandwich concrete slab, which will be replaced by a new structure. A new steel ledge with rail will be installed, drainage of the bridge will be changed and modified, the steel structure will be newly protected against corrosion, the existing dilatation joints will be replaced and the lower structure will be completely repaired and reconstructed.

The work was interrupted by putting the bridge in operation for passenger transport on 18 December 2015. At present, preparatory work on the bridge is in progress. On 1 April 2016 the bridge will again be completely closed and work scheduled for 2016 will start. The work includes repair of the bridge deck and the lower frame together with the start of work on repair of anti-corrosion protection.

The length of the bridge is 542.91 m. The main arch with a span of 379.60 m between the pillars (330 m between the joints) supports a structure carrying a two-lane road 50 m above the lake surface and 100 m above the Vltava River bed. The weight of the arch is 3,100 tonnes, the weight of all steel is 4,116 tonnes.

The Žďákovský bridge, a significant cultural monument, was completed in 1967. It is one of the world's largest steel arch bridges and is still frequently visited mainly by experts, but also by non-professionals.
