Upgrading the bridge safety standards
Thanks to meticulous planning, Dynniq successfully executes the safety update of a Dutch drawbridge vital to the local tourist industry and commercial road transport.
Rijkswaterstaat, the infrastructure authority of The Netherlands, has set new standards for the operation and safety of its drawbridges. Uniformity of operation is the main goal, as this leads to better safety and operational efficiency. The first bridge to be renovated according to these standards is the Eilandbrug near Kampen.
Dynniq introduced another first to the project, in that the whole process is executed according to the JSTD engineering standard, from design, to engineering and implementation. This means that in future, work and maintenance on the bridge can be done more reliably by the availability of uniform documentation.
The Eilandbrug is an important road link for commercial transport. Furthermore, the bridge plays a vital part in the local tourist industry, as the local classic sailing fleet ‘de bruine vloot’ must pass under the bridge whenever it sets sail. These factors mean that bridge closures must be kept to a minimum, leaving little time to execute a formidable technical challenge.
