feasibility study Causeway Bridge, Perth

The Western Australia Department of Transport has recently appointed us designated architect for the feasibility study of a new bicycle and pedestrian bridge across the Swan River in Perth. The existing Causeway Bridge will in future altered to allow more traffic as well as public transport, leaving no room for cyclists and pedestrians. Cyclists and pedestrians will however have to be able to cross the river and Heirisson Island once the Causeway bridge has been adapted. The feasibility study will therefore focus on building a new bicycle and pedestrian bridge in the vicinity of the existing Causeway bridge.
Next week two of our senior designers will be heading off to Perth for the kick-off week. Engineering office WSP is our Australian partner in this project.

Neckarbrücke Heidelberg

For a competition in Heidelberg we designed a bicycle connection spanning the river Neckar and two adjoining roads. The design comprises a continuous hovering ribbon over 500 meters in length. It features three arches that gently mirror the Odenwald mountains and form a gateway to the city of Heidelberg. With separate lanes for cyclists and pedestrians and a maximum slope of 3 %, the bridge offers both safety and comfort to all users.
