  • Description

    Building of the Elisabeth-bridge is going on in a rapid pace.The first cables are already strained on the southern assembly-carpet.

    On the northern assembly-carpet the first, fifty five millimetre thick and four hundred and fifty-eight meter long cable was pulled through on 19th July.Pulling through started in the morning before 9 o'clock with the help of the so-called sputnik cabledrawing-head.

    The drawing equipment was carefully fastened on the top of the pier.Sixty one bearing cables will be installed over the two assemble-carpets of the bridge.Their material is of great solidity.They will bear three times as much as the old chains have.

    Pulling through of the first northern cable was finished by one o'clock in the afternoon, as it was originally foreseen.
