July 2019 - At the beginning of May 2019, the bridge over the Wijmerts in the Frisian neighborhood of Abbegaasterketting was fitted with a new steel bridge deck. The Abbegaasterketting bridge is an important link for road and water traffic in this region and the renovation gives the bridge a new lease of life.
De Boer Snijbedrijf cut the steel parts for the bridge deck to size from steel S355 J2 + N with 3.1 certificate. De Boer Snijbedrijf also set various steel profiles. These profiles serve to reinforce the bridge deck to prevent it from sagging.
The steel parts of the bridge deck were welded together by N. Dijkstra Metaalbewerking from Harlingen. On 9 May 2019, the new steel bridge deck has been installed and mounted. The bridge railings have also been replaced. The balance and the drive have also been renovated.
