Wroclaw Bridge Days
Special events during the Seminar “Wrocław Bridge Days”– announcement of Polish bridge awards by the magazine “Mosty” (“Bridges”)
and meeting with the invited guest, Chep Uytiepo, Executive Director of IABSE, organised by “Young Bridge Builders”
This year’s Seminar was held under the title “Bridges and the Environment” on November 27-29, 2019. All together 37 papers were presented and 378 participants from Poland, Germany, Ukraine, Luxembourg and Switzerland participated in the event. They were engineers representing various groups of road administration, design offices, construction companies, universities and scientific institutes.
The Seminar’s issues concerned the correct inscribing of bridges into the landscape and its natural surroundings, bridge architecture and new ideas. An important issue was also the improvement of pedestrian safety through the construction of footbridges.
The whole series of the WBD Seminars significantly contribute to raising the substantive level of Polish engineers. This can be seen in the number of papers and articles about Polish bridges published e.g. at IABSE conferences and in the SEI Journal.
A special highlight of this year’s WBD was the 70th anniversary of their creator and organiser – Professor Jan Biliszczuk.
