PROJECT

02.005 | College Footbridge

This suspension bridge follows an S-shape in plan view. This geometry solves the issue of accessibility to the bridge from both banks. The maximum slope of the deck is limited to 5 %. The bridge’s length is 203 m with a central span of 86 m. The deck’s width is 3.2 m and consists of a steel hollow section 1 m high. The spatial shape of the cable follows the catenary of forces determined by software developed in-house.
