Project ID: PA1A159
Project website (German): http://www.schleuse-kriegenbrunn.wsv.de/
The lock Kriegenbrunn was put into operation in 1972. Soon afterwards the first damages were discovered and first constructional rehabilitation measures were necessary in 1974. Until 2008, altogether five rehabilitation measures were needed in order to maintain the functionality of the lock, but the problems were not solved entirely.
Building of the replacement construction.
The new lock will be built 45m downstream of the existing weir and lock. The lock chamber will have the same dimensions in lenght as the old lock (190m), while the width will be enhanced by 50cm to 12.5m.
As soon as the new lock has been put into operation, the existing lock will be shut down and partially dismantled.
The project will be implemented in 10 building phases, including the dismantling of the old lock.
Since it is not possible to bypass the lock, its reconstruction is crucial for navigation along the entire Rhine-Main-Danube axis.
