WES+ ensures fire safety on €250 million Max Bogl bridge

Max Bögl Group, Germany’s largest privately owned construction firm, most famous for the construction and refurbishment of Bayer Leverkusen’s BayArena and Frankfurt’s FIFA World Cup hosting Commerzbank-Arena, is showing continued dedication to safety by specifying WES+, Europe’s only EN 54 compliant wireless fire alarm system, in the construction of the New Schierstein Bridge.

This €250 million project includes construction of an entirely new four-lane bridge spanning the Rhine – connecting the major conurbations of Mainz and Wiesbaden. The original bridge was closed due to safety concerns in February 2015. Completion is expected in 2019.
