Success Story in the Middle East

VSL continues its long history of challenging projects in Qatar with the award of the New Orbital Highway Contract 3 in Qatar. VSL has developed an alternative design, based on precast segmental construction, which convinced the main contractor mainly because it optimises concrete and steel quantities of permanent work design, reduces the program of works and minimizes the risks. VSL engineers will design the major casting and erection equipment. This project perfectly reflects VSL’s aim to offer innovative construction techniques, designed to increase site safety, time savings, and improvement of durability and reduction of overall costs. Engineering works have already started and VSL construction works should be completed by mid 2016.

Quieter crossing in Slovakia

Installation of a post-tensioned deck was chosen as a quieter alternative than the traditional steel for a rail bridge crossing the Váh River in an urban area of Trenčín in Slovakia. The new bridge is being built as part of the upgrade of the Nové Mesto nad Váhom – Púchov railway. The project for Slovak Railways is being co-financed by EU funds and built by Bögl and Krýsl to a design by Betoning. The seven-span viaduct is 340m long and is being constructed by the balanced cantilever method. VSL is supplying tie bars and post-tensioning, together with PT-Plus® ducting.
