14.098 | Development of the banks of the Ourthe – Hotton Bridge
The project comprises 3 elements: widening the existing bridge, creating corbelled walkways and a blue stone footbridge. The aim of widening the bridge is to increase the surface area available to pedestrians and cyclists on the bridge, while at the same time providing quality walking areas linked to the river. To achieve this, prefabricated slabs are attached to the existing structure and then covered with a layer of bonding concrete. The underside of the precast slabs is hollowed out to give rhythm and texture to the work and to limit the weight.
The promenades are an extension of the work on the bridge, consisting of a reinforced concrete slab resting on the existing masonry walls and balanced by an underground concrete slab. The bluestone footbridge (slab and pier) is made of cut bluestone, a traditional material used by Walloon craftsmen. It allows people with reduced mobility to cross over to the Ile de l’Oneux.
