Canada and US tour

Adriaan Kok has recently been on a tour in the US and Canada, promoting our expertise and sharing insights and advice on bicycle infrastructure. Among the cities visited were Indianapolis, Saint Louis, Boston, Toronto and Richmond to name a few. Field trips such as these were also part of the programme. Want to know more about Adriaan and his vision? Check out our interview about the design of the Hovenring.

the story behind the Nigtevecht bridge

As much as pictures can tell a story, there is more to say about the Nigtevecht bicycle bridge project than pictures and basic data can show. That’s why we have asked Diane Daniel to interview senior designer Ivo Mulders on how the project came about. You can read the interview on the project page.

The N274 bicycle bridge near the village of Schinveld in the Netherlands has officially been opened. The result of a collaboration with renowned Dutch artist Marijke de Goey marks the northern entrance to the Parkstad area in the southern province of Limburg. The entire structure is in cast-in-situ concrete.

Europalaan Bridge completed

The Europalaan bridge in Beek near the Dutch city of Maastricht has recently been completed. The 54 meters long steel bicycle bridge is slender and sleek and meanders through the landscape like a silvery white snake. More info and pictures on the project page.

LA River bike path gap closure project Jacobs Alta ipv Delft Metro

commissioned for LA River project

We have been commissioned by the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority to develop the architectural design of all bridges required for the LA River Bike Path Gap Closure project. Jacobs Engineering Group and Alta Planning + Design will deliver the project in collaboration with us! We will design all bridge-like structures needed along the new bicycle path.

The Los Angeles River Bike Path Gap Closure Project entails design and construction of a bike path along an eight-mile stretch of the Los Angeles River (River) from Elysian Valley through Downtown Los Angeles to the City of Vernon, closing the longest remaining continuous gap in the Los Angeles River Bike Path.

The project will enhance mobility, provide commute options and access to employment hubs and high-quality transit lines, and provide a safer, more comfortable environment for people biking and walking. When completed, the LA River Path will offer a 32-mile continuous active transportation corridor connecting Long Beach to the San Fernando Valley.

The project is one of the city’s 28 infrastructure projects to be completed before the 2028 Olympics. It is scheduled to break ground in 2023 and complete in 2027.
