The John Paul II, Steel Arch Bridge in Poland contains Macalloy Tension Bars / Tie Rods within the structure.
Macalloy tension bars are used to suspend the bridge deck from the steel arch at John Paul II bridge in Pulawy, Poland. The tension bars were used in a twin bar arrangement either side of the steel arch. Located over the Vistula River, it is the longest arch bridge in Poland and has a span of 212m. The installation and tensioning of the tie rods was carried out by Macalloy's Polish partner BBR Polska.
