PROJECT

18.053 F29K | Timber footbridge

If the Ring around Brussels often still forms an troublesome barrier today, the Flemish Government wants to reconnect the areas inside and outside the Ring with projects such as De Priorij or the Vierarmen bicycle bridge. As such, fragmented nature areas and residential areas will be reconnected. Recreational attraction poles such as the Sonian Forest will thus be made more accessible. This is one of the main objectives of the ‘Working on the Ring Road’ R0 around Brussels.

One of the designs is a timber bicycle and pedestrian bridge with a single span of 67.5 m. The choice for timber in this wooded environment is obvious. However, the timber is not only provided as a cladding or finishing material, but also for the entire supporting structure.
