The new trough bridge over the Roda was built as a replacement for a pedestrian and cycle bridge, on which, due to lack of constructive wood protection, serious damage to timber and steel components were found. Here, particular attention was paid to the detailing of constructive wood protection for the new bridge. The girders are provided on the side with a ventilated larch covering and on the upper side with a sheet metal cover made of titanium zinc.
