Pedestrian and cyclists' bridge across the Spree

Trough bridge in Bautzen


This bridge construction was less expensive and technically more advanced than a planned steel construction. This project shows not only the environmental but also the economical advantages of a timber bridge. The construction convinces with a complete protection of the supporting timber structure. The pair of glulam main girders are covered laterally and on the top – the cross beams are made of galvanised steel. The decking is made of larch planks which are easy to replace if any damage occurs.
