Dismantling old Port Mann Bridge Vancouver, Canada
With the expansion of the British Columbia Highways, a new cable-stayed bridge over the Fraser River in Vancouver was built during the years 2009-2012. Due to this fact, the 50 years old Portman Bridge could be dismantled.
By means of auxiliary steel constructions, the steel structure was dismantled with strand jacks and lowered 40 meters partly. Altogether, 18‘000 tons of steel were dismantled. Job Report
