The bridge at the train station in Hoppegarten is a covered construction. The roof construction was carried out with an upside down trough section made of spruce glulam. The roof structure forms the main supporting structure of the bridge. The walkway was suspended from the roof construction with steel cables. This leads to a very transparent walkway which is protected from the top. The combination of the steel material with the coloured elements of the stairtowers create a modern appeal and show that timber is a material that is very suitable for constructions in the setting of a train station.
