Crossing the Agger River

Timber Arch Bridge in Lohmar Höngersberg


The new arch bridge over the Agger in Höngesberg has a similar design to the other timber bridges upstream. The design with no columns in the river and a large shore area ensures a rapid drainage in case of floods. The arch beams made of glulam are a real eye-catcher and fit in the natural environment. A high degree of prefabrication allowed a short construction period and a minimal invasive influence on nature.
