The trough bridge in wood construction spans a length of approx. 17 meters with a width of approx. 1.50 meters. Two glued laminated timber girders are the main structure and are stiffened by internal steel frames. Through a top cover made of titanium zinc sheet and a lateral timber cladding, the structure is optimally protected.

Below the cross member a media guide is suspended. The decking made of mastic asphalt serve as a particularly non-slip and durable surfacing surface.

An attached railing made of steel with horizontal stainless steel ropes as filling serves as fall protection.
