Pedestrian and Cycle Bridge Over the Tauber River

Client: City of Tauberbischofsheim

Year of construction: 2009

Length: 50,00 m
Width: 2,50 m

Structure: Four-part cable stayed bridge with steel pylon and block-laminated main beam

Our service: Design and engineering, execution planning, detailed calculation - service phase 1-3 and 5-6 according to German HOAI


The characteristic of this timber bridge is an integrated timber moisture measurement. At various points in the cross section of the block beam, sensors were installed to serve for a long period of time for humidity and dimension control. This monitorig is used mainly for quality assuarance and can provide us information about the wood as a material in bridge construction.

The bridge itself is characterized by an economic and aesthetic design. Trough the cables that are connected to the pylon and main beam, a very slim structure is created. A carefully designed pylon supports the lightness of the structure and itself forms a significant appearance.
