The first stage of the project includes Hetzel Bridge with a bridge area spanning 10,750 m2. The technology deployed is cast-in-place post tensioning
prestressing deck slab with a deck slab thickness of 125 cm.

construction stages analysis was conducted using SOFiSTiK's CSM task (= “Construction Stage Manager”).
