Shoring and taping for “Enztalquerung”
The A8 freeway near Pforzheim is one of the most frequented freeways in Germany. For a construction project of PST Spezialtiefbau Süd GmbH, SÜLZLE Nutzeisen delivered from mid-April to mid-November 2018 about 560 tons of steel in the form of girders, double U’s and web plates according to exact requirements as shoring and chord for the bridge renewal of the “Enztalquerung A8” near Pforzheim. This project was a special challenge not only because of the heavy volume of traffic, but also because of the multiple closures of the railroad, which had to be observed. At times, there were less than 24 hours between the arrival at the plant of the specially rolled beams, their processing and delivery to the construction site. Such a tight timing was only possible due to the very good cooperation between the purchasing department, the PST site management and the individual departments of SÜLZLE Nutzzeisen.
