In the area of the Coswig (Anhalt) stopover, the new construction of two HERING side-boarding platforms was implemented on order of HASTRABAU-WEGENER GmbH & Co. KG. The currently existing centre platform with a construction length of approx. 250.00 m was to be demolished.
The new side-boarding platforms in modular construction, each with a length of 155 m, a width of 2.75 m and a height of 55 cm over the top of rail (TOR), were built in two construction sections and in day and night shifts within a total period of six days. In the process, all foundations and the first 100 m of prefabricated railway platforms were assembled in the first construction phase. In the second construction phase, the remaining 55 m were placed. The stop was expanded to make it handicapped accessible in accordance with the currently valid directives.
The construction project was quickly concluded ahead of schedule. The side-boarding platform on Track 2 was assembled during the daytime with a rail crane from our Sabrodt subsidiary. After an approximately three-hour break, in the night shift the measures were implemented on Track 2 with the 50 T mobile crane.
