In the newly developed area of the so called "Blue City" a total of 11 timber bridges were created. Six of these are heavy duty bridges that have been designed as block-laminated glulam constructions and are used for vehicular access to the developed residential areas.
"Het Riet" is one of those bridges that serve the residents of a building section as access. The bridge is designed as a block girder bridge and has a decking of mastic asphalt, which was applied on site. A significant elevation ensures the crossing under with small boats and adds a certain dynamic to the appearence.
A railing with horizontal stainless steel cables serves as a transparent safety guard. The handrail of larch glulam makes it possible to experience the supporting material on the bridge.
