Construction progress on the Capricorn Bridge

11/12/2019 The steel structure of the Capricorn Bridge was installed in Düsseldorf. Only one weekend was necessary to lift and fix the two 26t and 12t heavy cantilevers.

The cantilevers of the bridge each consist of two half-shells, which were pre-assembled on site. The lifting into the final position was carried out as a whole. After completion of the work, the bridge will protrude freely from the central pylon 12m to the Capricorn building and 20m to the Float building.
