Bridge across Nieuwe Achtergracht canal successfully installed
On Saturday 8 October, the new bridge across the Nieuwe Achtergracht canal was installed smoothly.
The bridge was delivered on site by two trucks early in the morning. The four 27-metre long girders, each weighing between 10 and 12 tonnes, were hoisted into place one by one.
Work will continue until the summer of 2017 to complete the bridge and renew the sides of the canal. From the start of the new academic year, the bridge will connect the hall of Building E with that of Building A/B/C.
