Viaduct redevelopment - Vilvoorde

Description 

During the contract, Aswebo replaced the expansion joints on the outer and inner ring road as well as the steel part of the viaduct and the parts with a mixed structure. Repairs were also made to the waterproofing of the viaduct of the outer ring road, and the crash barriers were replaced.

The overhangs on the median strip and shoulders of both viaducts were given a waterproof coating. The new-jerseys received additional holes to prevent water stagnation. Both the right lane and the hard shoulder of the viaduct of the inner ring road received a new top layer. A supplementary support structure was installed to limit deflection at the expansion joints. Finally, a monitoring system was foreseen for the outer ring road viaduct. Measurements allow monitoring the metal fatigue present in the steel structure.

Despite the bad weather throughout the works, the project was completed on time.

Willemen Infra - the largest Belgian road construction company - came into being on 1 July 2018 as a result of the merger between Aswebo, Aannemingen Van Wellen and the infrastructure department of Kumpen.
