Bicycle Bridge, Heerhugowaard

puzzle
This project started off as a feasibility study. The city of Heerhugowaard wanted to see whether it was possible to build a bridge over the N242 road near the railway station. Existing buildings, a canal and an embankment limited space.
Once we found constructing a comfortable enough cycle bridge was indeed possible, the city council asked us to come up with a suitable design.
 
concrete structure
We envisioned a smooth and slender meandering bridge that would require hardly any maintenance at all.
Choosing an concrete structure made this possible. Only the middle section of the bridge deck was prefabricated, as otherwise the busy N242 road would have needed to be closed off for weeks, which of course was unwanted.
 
transparent
The railing is made out of small diameter stainless steel tubes, placed in such a way that they form a structurally sound solution without balusters, resulting in a continuous horizontal line that echoes the continuity of the bridge deck.
