Hovenring Eindhoven

This spectacular circular cable-stayed bridge offers cyclists and pedestrians an exciting crossover. The steel bridge with its 70-metre high pylon and 72-metre diameter deck hovers above an intersection, its impressive pylon marking the entrance way to the cities of Eindhoven and Veldhoven.

Right from it’s opening in the summer of 2012, it has become a new landmark for the city.

clear concept
Several decisions contributed to the iconic appearance of the bridge. The all-defining decision was to make sure the bridge would be as true to the concept of a pylon with cables and a circular deck as possible. Every detail was designed to keep the concept strong and clean-cut and the bridge slender.

We designed custom-made cable anchorage and tailor-made M-shaped supports. We also made the integrated lighting design that ensures the bridge is as spectacular at night as it is during the day.

site adjustment
User comfort was another thing that was high on our list. As space was limited, we decided to lower the ground level of the intersection underneath by a meter-and-a-half, allowing for a comfortable slope for pedestrians and cyclists.
