Bridge over Rhine in Basle

Switzerland

The line connecting the 'SBB' and 'Badischer Bahnhof' stations in Basle is being given a second twin track. The principle structure of this upgrade project is a new, second bridge
over the Rhine. This is being built parallel to both the existing railway bridge and to a motorway viaduct, and is being formed using a pair of Doka cantilever forming travellers.
