Sinntal Viaduct: Forming wagon TU lends elegance to cantilevered parapets

17.07.2013 | Press
On the A7 near Bad Brückenau in Northern Bavaria, Germany, an aesthetically appealing bridge spans the valley of the River Sinn in a broad sweep. As part of the works on this new bridge, around 3000 linear metres of elegantly shaped cantilevered parapets had to be formed in fair-faced concrete quality, using longitudinal planed tongue-and-groove board formwork. 4.00 m long Forming wagons TU from Doka, coupled together to make 28.00 m long travelling units, helped work to progress both safely and swiftly, as they could be towed ahead rapidly in a single operation.


  • Fair-faced concrete cantilevered parapets of superior quality and precision, formed and cast using the underslung Forming wagon TU.
  • Large-area formwork Top 50 was used as the basis for the elegant shape of the parapets.
  • Each of the easy-to-operate Forming wagons TU enabled 24.00 linear metres of cantilevered parapet to be formed and cast every two days.
