Commissioned by the municipality of Groningen, BAM civiel N.O. built the new Oresund Bridge in Groningen across the Winschoterdiep that connects St. Petersburgweg to Oresweg. The free passage height of the bridge is 3.8 meters. The bridge has separate lanes for bicycle, car and bus. The Oresund Bridge has created a new, important arterial road for Groningen and, with the Oresund route, provides a direct connection from Meerstad to the heart of Groningen. The bridge will be an important connection for anyone who wants to head to the city center from the east. The longest bridge in Groningen (400 meters) is intended for car and bicycle traffic and has a bus lane.
Subcontractor Machinefabriek Rusthoven has built the steel bridge and the spherical plain bearings for the main pivot points were supplied by ASEC Kunststoffen B.V.
The plain bearings of ASEC Kunststoffen B.V. are low maintenance and have a long service life. More and more bridges and locks in the Netherlands and abroad are fitted with plain bearings from ASEC Kunststoffen B.V.
