Fabrication starts on Waterford bridge
Eeklo, Belgium - We're excited to announce that Victor Buyck Steel Construction has commenced the fabrication of the Waterford City Sustainable Transport Bridge at our workshops in Eeklo and Wondelgem.
This new five-span, 8m wide bridge connects the north and south quays in central Waterford and will accommodate pedestrians, cyclists and an electric shuttle bus. A span will accommodate river traffic. The new 207m bridge is a key part of the City and County of Waterford's urban regeneration project, which will extend the center of Waterford across the Suir into the North Quays strategic development zone.
BAM Civil (Ireland) is the main contractor, working for Waterford City & County Council. Victor Buyck will fabricate, supply and assemble the steel structure of the bridge (983 T).
