August 2015 Now the bridge pillars for the HOV overpass in Utrecht are ready, it is time to construct the so-called belly. The belly is the convex connecting piece, exactly in the middle of the 44 meter long viaduct. Here, the forces are coming together of the two bridge parts which are each 22 meters long. Between the bridge pillars the belly will be illuminated from the water.
Contractor BAM has now finished the 21 meter long formwork of the belly. Soon the shuttering is put into place and the concrete poured.
