Historic steel bridges.

Remediation programme for the bridges in the Speicherstadt.

06.11.2020 – The bridges in Hamburg’s Speicherstadt (warehouse district) are to undergo a maintenance programme.

The warehouse district is a jewel case – full of historic steel bridges on timber piles from the 19th century. We have already carefully renewed some of these bridges – such as the Wandbereiter Bridge, the Wilhelminen Bridge and the Niederbaum Bridge – and adapted them for today’s requirements.

A programme of remediation is currently being produced, to determine a sequence of maintenance works for all the listed bridges of the Speicherstadt in the coming years.
