The Waal Bridge at Ewijk consists of a concrete cable-stayed bridge with four I-shaped pylons and a steel cable-stayed bridge with two I-shaped pylons between the two lanes. The bridge is a kilometre long and 40 metres wide. The bridge deck of the oldest bridge was worn. The structure was restored and brought to the same height as the road surface of the new bridge. For this renovation, the tar epoxy needed to be removed from the steel bridge deck.
Commissioned by CVB, ADS, with the help of two hydrodemolition robots equipped with a rotor lance, removed a whopping 16,500 m² of tar epoxy in just three months. Our contribution was a modest part of a large road construction project, but was still a complex and challenging job for us.
“Good to see how many square meters of steelplate bridge deprived of epoxy due to the use of robots”Danny Koridon
