Autostrada A1, the Polish part of European route E75, stretches the length of Poland from the northern Baltic coast to the Czech border in the south with a length of 568 km. The motorway was newly constructed or re-constructed along its entire length in recent years, and mageba played a part in the construction of many of the bridges along its route.
The section between the towns of Torun and Stryków in northern Poland contains a large number of bridges that were constructed using mageba products.
mageba supplied 762 RESTON-POT bearings for the construction of 23 bridges on this stretch of motorway. The vertical load-carrying capacities of these pot bearings varied between 850 kN and 30,000 kN per bearing. Some bearings are designed to resist horizontal movements in any direction (type TF, “fixed”), while others are designed to accommodate sliding movements in all directions (TA, “free sliding”) or along one axis only (TE, “guided sliding”).
