New bridge in Leverkusen, Germany

Eiffage, through Eiffage Métal and its subsidiaries SEH (Germany) and Iemants (Belgium), recently won, in a consortium with Hochtief and Max Bögl, the contract to build a new bridge on the Rhine in Leverkusen, Germany. The contract amounts to €180 million in total, with Eiffage’s share worth €116 million. The new 2×3 lane bridge will be located on the A1 motorway linking Leverkusen and Trier. This project aims to double the capacity of the undersized existing structure and is part of ongoing bridge improvement plans in Germany.  

The contract covers the construction of a 1,068‑metre‑long structure comprising a 689‑metre cable-stayed metal section and a concrete section. The metal components, almost 16,000 tonnes of steel in total, will be manufactured in the Group’s European factories before being transported along the Rhine to the bridge site. Eiffage will be drawing on all its production capabilities to help complete this large-scale structure. Works are to begin immediately, with handover scheduled for early 2024 at the latest.
