The redesign will provide a generous curb for pedestrians and cyclists that will raise the bridge’s visibility from a distance. Strong, clean lines create a recognizable identity with a comfortable layout. Two staircases lead up to the bridge deck and feature landings that allow visitors to pause.

“The main concept underlying the design was a combination of comfort and tangible quality for pedestrians and cyclists experiencing the bridge up close, and a strong and recognizable identity for viewers experiencing it from a distance,” said architect Erik Moederscheim. “Taking this theme as a point of departure, we designed a profile that forms a strong, clean line in the surrounding landscape and creates a comfortable layout,” he added. Construction work and repairs are expected to start next year.
