Skyline of the New Meuse
The components were finished on location after assembly, using a paint roller. To make this possible, a pump system that feeds the paint to the roller was used. This innovation ensured that the project, which involved 15,000 man-hours and 20,000 litres of paint, went smoothly. The painters worked from an enclosed working platform that was engineered to travel up along the outside of the pylon. This inventive solution, combined with the exceptional height of the bridge, meant this was a unique project.
