Railway over the Oude Maas - bottleneck for shipping and railway traffic
J.H.E. Tinke & H. deKruiff

The Dutch Railway authorities are paying much efforts in largely extending the infrastructure of the Dutch railways, this in order to satisfy the ever increasing human traffic. One of the jobs in this scheme is the widening of the bridge over the river the Oude Maas at Dordrecht. To realise this expansion, Franki Foundations executed large diameter bored piles in combination with grouting works. In order to check the pile design as well as the execution method provided, a large number of control measurements have been performed in the very first pile. The results of the considered foundation works and the control measurements are detailed in this paper.
