Railway and bridges

The contract comprises a 750 metre double-track railway line, in which the line will, among other things, run over the Lille Syd railway line between Roskilde and Næstved. In the short section, two side tracks for the new high-speed line will also pass under the S line, new double-track line and Køge Bugt motorway, and concrete retaining walls will be established in half of the section so that the new line section is raised and can be guided to the Lille Syd line.

Two footbridges will also be established: one across the Lille Syd line, and another stretching across the S line, Køge Bugt motorway and the new double-track line.

WATCH A BRIDGE BE CAST IN 22 HOURS

Sometimes, size is essential. And the bridge bearing the clinical name "TP 45 S BRA-10" was indeed a big project for Arkil Bro & Beton, when it was cast in September in just 22 hours.

When finished, the bridge will lead the new Danish high-speed rail link between the towns of Ringsted and Femern over the new line to Køge Nord. The bridge is over 40 m in length and 7 m wide, and it was cast in situ in 22 hours. Two 32-man teams were assigned to the project and were supported by two laboratory vehicles and four pumps, all of which worked non-stop to fill the bridge's total 1,240 m3 of concrete.
