Migros parking deck ramp, Zurich

The area of the road was expanded as a result of the conversion of Pfingstweidstrasse. Because entry to the existing spiral ramp was no longer possible, a new ramp had to be created from the ramp for the Engrosmarkt roof to the Migros parking deck. The new ramp is designed as a bridge with a continuous beam made of six sections and is approx. 110 metres long. The distances range between 12.0 and 24.4 metres. The two end sections and section two are heavily bent. The bridge is connected monolithically to the existing bridge on the side of the Engrosmarkt deck.

Construction method:  Because so little space was available, Migros works traffic had to be temporarily relocated to construct the large bored piles, the pillar verge and the pillars. For construction of the four superstructure phases, the falsework had to be designed in such a way that the required clearance gauge on the Migros site thoroughfare was guaranteed at all times. The heavily bent complete cross-section was then boarded using variable cleats starting with the formwork and layered with concrete.
