With its slender asymmetrical deck and 18-metre high pylon, the new bicycle bridge across the Rijn-Schie Canal in the Dutch city of Rijswijk is a true eye-catcher. Last week, the swing bridge designed by Dutch design office ipv Delft welcomed its first users.
The tall and slender footbridge accessing the Heidekamp Park designed for the Dutch city of Stein is currently being built. Construction is scheduled to be finished somewhere in the autumn of 2014.
From July 16th – 18th ipv Delft will be present at the international Footbridge 2014 conference in London. We will present our paper on the Hovenring, a circular cable-stayed bridge designed for the Dutch city of Eindhoven and will hold a short presentation on how to design a footbridge.
