2010 Linge bridge
Ever since there is a railroad between Den Bosch and Utrecht there has been a bridge over the Linge river near Geldermalsen. The original bridge was destroyed in the last months WWII. In 1946 two bridges were relocated from Limburg to Geldermalsen to restore this all important North-South connection, one of only three in the Netherlands. Having been in place for over 65 years this ageing bridge increasingly became a bottle neck. Noisy, low speed and only two tracks where four would soon be needed, it was due for replacement. Follow the story of that event.
