Biala bridge built13 July 2018
A Liebherr all terrain and a crawler worked together to build a bridge in the Tatra Mountains, Poland.
The LR 1300 and the LTM 1160-5.1 worked as a wellcoordinated team during the job. Liebherr equipment was also relied upon for the deep foundation work.
In 2010, the bridge over the River Biala in Jankowa-Lipniczka, Poland, was destroyed by a fl ood. Now it has been rebuilt with the aid of a Liebherr LR 1300 cralwer, alongside an LTM 1160-5.1 all terrain and a duty cycle HS855 HD.
The contractor IMB-Podbeskidzie erected six bridge sections over the river with a total weight of 116t. The sections were delivered by low-loader from Skoczów, Silesia, pre-assembled on site, and then lifted and positioned by the crawler.
The bridge comprises 60t of side sections with a length of 15.5m each and 56t of middle sections at a length of 14m each. A Liebherr mobile crane LTM 1160-5.1 was used as tandem partner for the LR 1300 during the lifting work.
The HS 855 HD was equipped with a vibratory hammer to install sheet piles. The job was completed in seven months, and the new bridge is now open to traffic.
