Consolidation of bridge Lambre

Experience has shown that good preservation of old bridges is closely linked to good foundations. Lacking it causes damages similar to those that this bridge had, which were caused by the sliding of the right abutment into the river and its right half upstream, having a longitudinal crack in the semi-vault on that side.

To contain this slippage, an underpinning was designed and implemented by a cross beam consisting on a metal section embedded in mass concrete, which had to be held to a set of micropiles on opposite sides of the abutment; due to the lack of rock that would have enabled its anchoring.

The paving and parapets were also repaired.
