An attractive public park, 130 by 10 meters in size, located right above the railway tracks, with a unique fully timber bridge deck. In a nutshell, that’s the sustainable and green footbridge at Zwolle train station. It is with pride that ipv Delft, Karres en Brands (coordinating architect) and German Ingenieurbüro Miebach now present the final design.
On September 24th all partners involved in the Zwolle public transport bridge project were awarded the Thüringer Staatpreis für Ingenieurleistungen 2019. The biannual German engineering award consists of 15000 euro. We designed the S-shaped bridge for Zwolle city council and Dutch railway infrastructure organisation ProRail. The awarded parties are Koninklijke BAM, Setzpfandt, ProRail, Zwolle and ipv Delft.
US based media company Forbes has picked up on our publication about the Zwolle public transport bridge. Transport and infrastructure journalist Carlton Reid wrote an interesting article on both the Zwolle bridge and various other ipv Delft projects. Outstanding free publicity for us! And a good read for anyone interested in infrastructure and bridge design.
