Maffeis executed the detail design for the two double swing bridges at El Ferdan, Ismailia.
The project consists in the retrofitting and upgrading of the existing bridge from one to double rail lane, and in the design of a new bridge, with the same geometries of the existing one, with a double rail lane. The design included the bridge’s mechanical rotation and its locking system through electrical motors and hydraulic pistons.
