Description of project

The viaduct at Lingenau, object B205.022, which crosses the Bregenzerach between Alberschwende/Müselbach and Lingenau (A), was built in 1967. It is a reinforced concrete arch bridge with an overall length of 369 m and an elevated road surface.


  • 4 spans foreland bridge Müselbach with a width between supports of 23 m,
  • 14 spans above ground with a width between supports of 16 m,
  • 2 spans foreland bridge Lingenau with a width between supports of 26,50 m

The span of the arch amounts to 210,00 m, the hight of the pillar to 45,00 m. The track support was built as a twin-webbed T-beam cross section/continuous beam over the complete length of the bridge. The overall length of the track support is 10,30 m. At the foreland bridges the height of structure was realised with 2,20 m, over the arch girder with 1,40 m.

Description of tasks

  • Reconstruction under maintenance of traffic (1/0-traffic routing on the bridge)
  • Renewal of bridge sealing and bridge drainage including dimensioning of manifold, building of new collection sump and water discharge of arch foundation on the side of Müselbach
