Tilburg | Oisterwijksebaan | Swing bridge


  • Project number: 19-410
  • Length: 30m
  • Width: 6m
  • Class: Eurocodes
  • Construction year: 2019

Commissioned by Rijkswaterstaat and SPIE, FiberCore Europe produced a new FRP bridge deck for the swing bridge at the Oisterwijksebaan in Tilburg (the Netherlands). The existing bridge was dismantled and transported by ship to the SPIE workshop in Dordrecht. There the bridge was fitted with a new drive mechanism and the wooden bridge deck was replaced. Local residents experienced noise nuisance due to defects on the aged wooden deck; this has been remedied with the installation of the low-maintenance FRP deck on the existing steel construction.
