Post-tensioned solution for animal access bridge in Sweden

January 26, 2018

PEAB Sweden, one of the Nordic region’s leading construction and civil engineering companies, commissioned CCL to supply and install CCL XM post-tensioning systems for the new Sandsjöbacka Bridge which is located over the E6 motorway near Kungsbacka, Sweden.

The bridge is designed to create a seamless extension of existing woodland and grassland areas primarily to enable animals to cross the motorway safely, although there will also be access for pedestrians.

CCL completed the post-tensioning work on the 64-metre-long bridge in two stages. Each section comprises a total of 28 cables. Stage one was installed, stressed and prepared to receive the cables from stage two. The stage two cables were successfully coupled to those in stage one and then stressed. An additional 28 cables span the entire length of the bridge.
