[5/10/2019] A85 flyover: building the deck slab

Building of the reinforced concrete deck slab (which sits atop the girders and supports the roadway) has begun at the Langeais flyover worksite on motorway A85 (VINCI Autoroutes).

The civil engineering consortium, consisting of Eurovia Béton and ETPO, is currently installing 17 prefabricated slab segments that are part of the future deck slab. These components are being mounted on the steel structure using a crane.
Let us recall that three duplicate flyovers are being built south of the city of Tours on A85, the motorway that connects Tours and the city of Angers. Construction of two of these flyovers was entrusted to the ETPO/Eurovia Béton/Eurovia Tours/Baudin Châteauneuf consortium. Erecting these structures – which are designed to ease the flow of traffic and improve road safety – is a true technical challenge. Project delivery is set for the beginning of 2020.
