MINIMUM MATERIAL USE AND SHORT CONSTRUCTION TIME
After a successful first collaboration in the Hoflandstraat, the municipality of Pijnacker-Nootdorp has decided to order eight more super slender new bicycle and pedestrian bridges according to the Delft UHPC Bridge System. This is due to the advantages of a short construction time, a long lifespan of more than 100 years and a maintenance-free character. But also because the municipality is in favour of minimal use of materials.
CRC I3® - THIRD GENERATION OF OUR UHPC
With a thickness of only 8.5 cm, the bridge deck in CRC i3® ultra high performance concrete is super slender. Like the Catharina van Rennespad in Amersfoort, the UHPC wear layer is integrated into the deck. Other nice features are the absence of visible cross beams under the bridge deck and the steel fencing design with beautiful details.
The modular, removable UHPC deck plates are 3.4 meters wide and 1.5 meters long and are attached on two steel beams with a maximum span of 14 meters, without intermediate support.
