Viaduct Krakow-Plaszow Railway Junction

Datos de Proyecto

Ubicación: Krakow, Polonia

252 m long crossing over the Krakow-Płaszow railway junction using the balanced cantilever method


  • Extradosed bridge with hollow box cross-section
  • Strong asymmetric shape of the superstructure cross-section as well as its variable width along the structural axis
  • Taking into consideration tendons and anchorage points of the stay cables outside of the box girders
  • Ensuring rail operations are not interrupted during construction of the crossing

The PERI cantilevered construction equipment used allowed easy and quick formwork alignment as well as providing safe working conditions above the railway. With the help of the balanced cantilever carriage, extremely short concreting cycles as well as punctual realization of the project according to plan are possible. Thanks to the cooperation with PERI, the job could be realized in spite of the complicated infrastructure around the structure.

Solución PERI
