"Kabelsteg" for cyclists

Block glulam bridge Gschröff in Steyrermühl, AT


The former cable bridge near a paper fabric was replaced by a bridge that is now leading pedestrians and cyclist across the Traun. The untouched bank can now be discovered and experienced by the new bicycle and hiking rail. The form of the four-span structure is inspired by the curve of the river. The slender V-shaped steel supports and the railings with stainless steel nets underline the form of the massive block girder. A covering of titan zinc sheets beneath the larch decking on the top and a latteral cladding on the side protect the timber structure and guarantee a long life span.
