Between 2008 and 2012, one of Lithuania’s most important highway junctions, a roundabout with diameter of 300 m that connects six roads, was reconstructed. Following completion of the work, the roundabout is now crossed overhead by a viaduct of length 610 m, with further bridges enabling free-flowing traffic in other directions and creating a three-level interchange.
The junction forms the north end of European highway E85, which connects the Baltic and Mediterranean Seas via Lithuania, Belarus, Ukraine, Romania, Bulgaria and Greece.
mageba supplied a large number of RESTON-SPHERICAL bearings and TENSA-MODULAR expansion joints for the redevelopment of this highway junction. For the construction of the main flyover in 2009, 98 RESTON-SPHERICAL bearings (designed for vertical loads of up to 11,000 kN) were supplied, along with 53 m of TENSA-MODULAR expansion joints (types LR2 and LR3). For the second phase in 2011/2012, 51 RESTON-SPHERICAL bearings (designed for loads of up to 14,000 kN) and 43 m of TENSA-MODULAR expansion joints (types LR2 and LR3) were also supplied.
149 RESTON-SPHERICAL bearings (up to 14 MN), 8 TENSA-MODULAR joints (LR2, LR3)
