The construction of these two railway bridges crossing the Mures is part of the European project on the IV Pan European corridor aiming to improve railway transport in the area.

Construction of two painted railway bridges weighing 4.800 tons. The first one, named PK 574+550, stands on five pillars, two of which are on the riverbed; the one called PK 575+486 stands on four pillars two of which are on the riverbed. Through specific telescopic cranes, the structures are assembled on site in a launching zone having the same length of the deck.

Once the launch of the two decks is completed, they will be placed in the final position.
