The Mulde railway bridge at Bitterfeld

(Graphic: DB AG)

A series of new bridges with a length of 552 metres crosses the Mulde floodplain north of Bitterfeld. The old vaulted bridge, which was built in 1857, was replaced between 1995 and 1997. The road bridge for the L 138 road between Muldenstein and Friedersdorf was also rebuilt. For 3.2 kilometres the tracks run along a new embankment designed for a speed of 200 km/h.
