In the course of Ostseeautobahn BAB A 20 (A20 Baltic Sea Motorway) As part of the traffic project “Deutsche Einheit” (German unity) two bridges on the A 20 motorway form a further link between the old and new federal states.
„Himmelsleiter“ (stairway) over the River Wupper connects Leverkusen districts in accordance with the latest safety requirements and provides an improved flood runoff.
The bridge was completed 20 months in advance of the agreed deadline as a result of a clever construction concept.
