That was pretty fast, but really because the bridge was prefabricated and pushed into place. The time it took the concrete company to build to the forms, cut the rebar, make the pour(s), and let it cure was not counted. That took more than 4 days, even working concurrently.

Lincoln,

German engineer here. Apparently it took 11 Months. It is the usual way of doing it to narrow down the train tracks closing time.

That Bridge is in Walpertskirchen, Germany.

Same bridge would take 6 months in the US and would need to be replaced in 20 years.

well... in Brazil it would take 4 years at minimum and cost 10x more and in the end will still see a unfinished job ... This is kind the default around here. ok

OK, impressive but it is just a 4 meters bridge and it was pre-built.
