A Unique FRP Shared Use Bridge Demonstrates Versatile Composite Technology

In yet another leap forward in composite pedestrian bridge innovation, FiberCore Europe have manufactured a shared use bridge using the InfraCore® Inside technology with a striking semicircular edge for a railway overpass project in The Netherlands. The bridge is 16.4 metres long and 6.5 metres wide and only weights in at 16.5 tonnes and was installed at nighttime in a single lift in less than 1 hour. The huge advantages in off-site pre-fabrication allows for these extraordinary fast installation times, minimises on-site construction risk and provides more reliability in cost predictions. The use of InfraCore® FRP also means that the structures are lightweight, have a very long life span and are largely maintenance free.

Fibre Reinforced Polymers (FRP) in Buildings & Civil Engineering Structures – Recommendation 96:2019

In a great step forward for designers, engineers and stakeholders who know the advantages of FRP being used in the infrastructure sector, the CROW-CUR Recommendation 96:2019 Fibre Reinforced Polymers (FRP) in Buildings & Civil Engineering Structures – has recently been released in English. ‘CROW’ is The Netherlands Information and Technology Platform for their Department of Transport, Infrastructure & Public Space. CUR96 Recommendation describes the engineering principles for the design of FRP structures and is available for purchase and download at Please contact SIS directly if you would like a to understand more about the content of this document.
