location Amsterdam
function bridge
contributed by Bjorn_Utpott

This cycle and pedestrian bridge is the longest in the Netherlands, spanning the busy Rijn Kanaal in the IJburg district of Amsterdam. The result of a close collaboration between architects and engineers, the bridge provides a vital connection for residents of IJburg, a suburb built on recently reclaimed land east of the city, with the Diemerpark at the ‘mainland’. With its slender form, the bridge slots elegantly into its surroundings.The bridge has a clear span of 170 m, providing the 10 cm clearance necessary for boats on the canal below. The long approaches at either end have e a shallow gradient for cyclists and other bridge users. Curved in plan, the bridge is designed to sit elegantly within the reclaimed landscape and to respect its unique ecological habitats. A unique feature of this first suspension bridge in the Netherlands is that the deck is suspended on one side only. It is also Wilkinson Eyre’s first project in the country.
