As manager of the track that crosses the Botlek Bridge, ProRail has an interest in ensuring that the interfaces between track and bridge are kept under control.

ProRail asked Movares to use its expertise to ensure that road and rail traffic could pass safely over the New Botlek bridge

Movares’ role

We drew up a reference design for the mechanical control system, the supporting structures for the overhead line and the railway bridge control installation.

A survey was carried out, covering all machine safety aspects (CE marking), maintenance and risks regarding availability and reliability.

We assigned an experienced movable bridges project manager/advisor to manage the technical and other interfaces between ProRail and A-Lanes A15, the contractor working for the Directorate-General of Public Works and Water Management.
