Swing Bridge, Rijswijk
movable bridge Rijswijk
 
With its slender asymmetrical deck and 18-metre high pylon, the new bicycle bridge across the Rijn-Schie Canal in the Dutch city of Rijswijk is a true eye-catcher
connector
The city of Rijswijk is situated on both sides of a canal, with the canal acting as a barrier for cyclists and pedestrians especially. Therefore, the City Council asked ipv Delft to research possible locations for a new bridge across the canal.
This extensive study resulted in a proposal for a moveable bridge, which we were then asked to design.
 
design
We designed a swing bridge with an 18-metre high pylon placed to the side of the canal. This structural concept made it possible to have a slender, asymmetrical deck that’s extremely slim at the far end.
