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.
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.

The movable bridge we designed for Rijswijk city council is currently being built. The steel bridge deck was recently transported by boat to its final destination.
