projectBicycle Crossing of Highway N242

This project was completed by Maurits Lopes Cardozo with ipv Delft.

The location for this crossing was challenging due to various space constraints: a canal, busy highway, businesses and homes, subsoil infrastructures, integration of bus stops and possible future widening of the highway. The team completed a feasibility study resulting in the decision that a bridge was possible and affordable. The design team developed an elegant and user-friendly, low-maintenance, and high strength concrete bridge. The ramps are optimised for cyclists and maintenance vehicles. The design was set up to ensure minimal impact on the flow of highway traffic during construction.
