|This competition winning design was finally
realized in 2001 after many discussions and changes. The competition was
carried out by the organization of public parks of the city of Brussels,
in 1998. The bridge has a length of 70 meters and links the popular Woluwe
Park that is divided by the main street ,Av. de Tervuren.
Av. de Tervuren is the longest street that runs from North to West crosswise
through Brussels, accompanied by the tram way. Pedestrians and cyclists
are interrupted in their flow when strolling through the park and therefore
requests a new link between both sides.
||The double bridge connects the park levels in a linear
structure and the street levels in an arch structure. Cyclists and pedestrians
are thus allowed to move freely from side to side or to swap levels. The
bridge is designed as a lightweight structure, covered with a wood deck
surface and is equipped with this handrails. The installed up-lights do
not only enlighten the dark and shady surrounding but also put an accent
to the linear main street.
