Liebherr LTM 1650-8.1 installs bridge in area struck by disaster

The Bielefeld branch of the Federal Agency for Technical Relief (THW) has hoisted a 46 tonne temporary prefabricated bridge over the River Erft using an LTM 1650-8.1. It will replace the bridge that was destroyed and washed away by the severe flooding in summer 2021. It means that car drivers and pedestrians in the south-west of the district capital will once again be able to cross the River Erft. The temporary bridge has sufficient capacity to carry vehicles weighing up to 30 tonnes. It is an important signal for the local population to show that restoration work is progressing and is due to remain in place for around one year until the brand new Erft bridge is ready for installation.
