In a first phase, the large bridge section was loaded at the fabrication facility in Ghent, transported to and unloaded at the site 80 km further on in Grobbendonk. After final assembly, the bridge with a total weight of 650t and length of 100m, was jacked up 9 m, loaded onto the barges Karel & Victor using SPMT's and sailed from the jacking place, over more than 2 Km, before being set down in its final position over the "Albert Channel".
