Excitement in Namur, on the side of Jambes: the five elements of the arch of the new pedestrian-cyclist bridge “l’Enjambée”, are being assembled. The teams are busy preparing the major phase: the rotation of the structure across the Meuse, whose operations will start on Friday 10 August.
In a few days, the new pedestrian-cyclist bridge will finally cross the river Meuse. Its installation will inaugurate a privileged itinerary for users between the two banks, and will connect the Grognon on the Namur side to Mazy street in Jambes. For the teams of bureau greisch, it is the concretisation of more than 6 years of studies, design, calculations and drawing.
Manufactured in Spain and transported by road to the construction site, the five elements are currently being assembled on a pontoon on the right bank of the river. Each weighing 34 to 57 tonnes, they are 100 metres long and weigh a total of 230 tonnes.
The most spectacular part of the operations is the bridge rotation. To attend, please join us this Friday, August 10 starting at 10am. The various phases of the implementation will continue until Sunday, August 12.
