Bridge for pedestrians in the Waalhaven in Rotterdam. The purpose of the bridge is to cross 6 railways of the ProRail range area. The bridge is accessible for pedestrians and for cyclists who can push their bikes up the stairs through a special bike-wheel-gutter.
The bridge is placed on a concrete foundation, with steel portals to support the bridge deck, steel railings and stairs. Special feature are the railings of 25 mm. perforated steel plates. These plates have a top and bottom flange in order to form an I-section beam which supports the complete span of the bridge deck. The plates are perforated with diamonds constantly changing in size. Beside the railings the bridge has a couple of other special features as well, like the very slim bended steelplate stair steps and similar slim strip steel staircase railings with steel wire knee rails.
