For the Belgian Championship Cyclocross in Ostend from the 7th until the 8th of January 2017, voestalpine Sadef has produced the steel profiles for the biker bridge. In the beginning of December the first profiles were delivered in Ostend where the company Beeuwsaert Construct has started the pre-assemby of the bridge. First the towers have been build, then the other parts have been bolted together.
And then ‘le moment suprême’! In the night of the 12th of December, all traffic of cars and trams have been blocked. That night the biggest part of 22 tonnes was mounted above the road and tramway by two huges cranes.
The show could count on some interest: the local residents left their sleep to follow the events. A short video can also be found on our Facebook page.
The press was massively present!
