The new bridge crosses the Reuss River in Stetten/Niederwil below the Reusspark Clinic. The bridge structure is based on two elegant river pillars and on the landside abutments. These in turn are supported on cast-in-place concrete bored piles. A trough formed from weather-resistant steel serves as the load-bearing element for the superstructure. The 100 m long superstructure is made of reinforced concrete.
The limited space available on the pylons required special attention in the selection of the structural bearings. mageba‘s RESTON®SPHERICAL bearings equipped with ROBO®SLIDE sliding material are fitting perfectly to the modern bridge design. In order to minimize the traffic noise emission mageba‘s plug joint TENSA®POLYFLEX®Advanced was installed. It is the first flexible plug expansion joint to be installed in the canton of Aargau.
