Exactly 25 years ago today, ipv Delft was born. We have had twentyfive inspiring years, in which we were able to deepen our knowledge and expertise and completed many wonderful projects. We could not have done it without our clients, so thank you all! We are looking forward to many more years of inspired collaboration.
On the edge of the Dutch city of Eindhoven, this landmark bicycle bridge is nearing completion. The 160-metre long network arch bridge across the A2 motorway will be opened officially in mid-November, but cyclists and pedestrians will be able to start using it this friday.
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.
