The bridge is made from sustainable Accsys Technologies Accoya wood, which is both FSC and PEFC certified.

    What happens when it rains? Does it flood? Is there a drainage system?

    Couldnt build it in the USA. Not ADA compliant. Too bad.

    How does the rain water drain that is inside the bridge?

    What a sad place the world would have been if if all the great wonders of the world – including the universe itself – had been designed to meet the EU directive on disabled access!
