It’s been rolling for 5 years now.
21.10.2016 - How time flies! "Our" taxiway bridges at Frankfurt Airport have now been in operation for exactly 5 years!
The north-west runway was opened on 21.10.2011. To connect it to the airport’s existing flight operation areas, two taxiways cross the ICE railway line, the A3 autobahn and the airport ring road. Five large bridge structures were created. Taxiway Bridge West 1 is more than 90 metres long and up to 117 metres wide along the taxiway axis. Taxiway Bridge East 1– also along the taxiway axis – is more than 200 metres long and up to 220 metres wide.
