Description

Building Brighter Bridges‏ -The longest hybrid composite bridge in the world is a great example of innovation, as it is 3 times lighter compared to a concrete and steel alternative, costs less, and was installed in under 48 hours. To make this bridge a reality required an impressive cooperation. Construction companies Heijmans and FiberCore, together with DSM, developed a hybrid bridge with a complete composite deck and steel structure. The result is a lightweight bridge, which saves costs in both time and money. If you're in the Netherlands, you can see it over the A27 highway near Utrecht.
