Kičevo Podvis Motorway Bridge, North Macedonia

Project data

Location: Kičevo Podvis, Macedonia

  • New bridge construction as part of the expansion of the North Macedonia motorway network
  • 381 m long bridge with separate carriageway slabs
  • Radial bridge superstructure with a 165 m span

Requirements

  • Construction of a 381 m long bridge in challenging terrain
  • Cost-effective execution of the complex superstructure geometry with different bridge cross-sections, superstructure heights and longitudinal as well as lateral inclinations
  • Project-specific execution and logistics solution for the constructing the superstructure along with the bridge piers within a very tight construction schedule

Customer

GD Granit, Skopje, North Macedonia

Customer's benefit

  • Time-savings through simple, fast adaptation of the balanced cantilever equipment to suit the changing bridge cross-section
  • Reduced working time thanks to fast shuttering and striking operations with one hydraulic solution
  • Reduced crane time due to independent moving procedure of the VBC Cantilevered Construction Carriages
  • Economical solution through the rentability of the system components
  • Continuously optimised workflows through on-going site support
  • Simple communication process due to the execution and logistics solution from a single source

Together with the PERI expert team of engineers, we quickly defined the technical solutions for the realization of the bridge project. Extremely important to us was the on-going site support when the VARIOKIT was being used.

PERI solution

  • Project-specific cantilever construction solution based on the VARIOKIT Engineering Construction Kit for the execution of the bridge superstructure
  • Parallel use of four balanced cantilevered carriages for accelerating execution times
  • Individually-adapted climbing formwork solution for cost-effective construction of the bridge piers
  • Just-in-time delivery of the required formwork and scaffolding materials
  • Continuous on-site support in order to optimise work operations
