The M0 north danube-bridge consortium – poland's Hídépítö and germany's strabag – has used Peri ACS self climbing formwork, Vario girder formwork, Domino panel formwork and Multiflex girder wall formwork, during construction of the 1862 m long Megyeri Bridge in Budapest, Hungary.
When complete in August 2008 the HUF 61,9 billion (€ 247 million) bridge, part of the northern section of the MO motorway – the ring road around the capital – will connect to the m3 motorway. Divided into five sections on a total of 28 supports, the central part is a 590 m long cable-stayed bridge over the River Danube with spans of 145, 300 and 145 m respectively. Construction includes two abutments, four joint supports, seven floodplain piers and the two A-shaped pylons in the centre of the river.
