Riyadh Metro project - Line 4 bridge deck erection equipment
In 2014-15 DLT were sub-contractors to FAST Consortium for design and supply of 2 No DL-SE500/35 span erectors, 2 No DL-TLC500 transporters and 2 No DL-SC260/21.2/25 straddle carriers for the transport and final erection of 500 tonne 35m long precast concrete bridge deck beams on the 16.7km long elevated section of line 4 of the Riyadh Metro project. The equipment was designed to deliver and erect the bridge beams at an average rate of 1 per day, to erect bridge beams on a plan radius of 1200 m and to pass through cast in-situ sections with a plan radius of 100 m. To deliver over 100m plan radius it was necessary to design the transporter with a quick release central spine beam joint so the it can work as two independently steering halves when passing over sections with small plan radii and work as a single unit when delivering the bridge beams into the back of the span erector.
