Overview

Chillon Viaducts, Switzerland

The Chillon viaducts are located in Switzerland, over the east end of Lake Geneva, south east of Montreux. It comprises two parallel 1.4 mile long prestressed concrete box girder bridges, bearing the east and westbound lanes of the Swiss A9 highway. Built in the 1960s, it was one of the largest works in prestressed concrete for many years, so it was of great historic value to the area. Originally designed to sustain an estimated volume of 10,000 vehicles per day, it is currently being used by 50,000 vehicles daily.

Case Study Description

The Bigge Dam in Attendorn (North Rhine-Westphalia) was built between 1957 and 1965. The purpose of the dam is to prevent flooding, to act as a reservoir for the water supply, to generate hydro-electric power and to serve as a tourist attraction.

During the course of the repair work, WALO renewed the outer asphalt seal of the main dam, which involved abrading and reinstalling the upper section. Because the water supply had to remain uninterrupted for the duration of the project, all of the work had to be done above the water.
