From a distance, these bridges look just like old-fashioned timber bridges in a typical Dutch polder landscape, and that is exactly the intention! In reality these bridges are the modernized version; made of composite with handrails made of recycled plastic.

Unlike the earlier timber bridges, they are now maintenance-free, but not much else has changed. After the first series of five bridges, the municipality was so satisfied that they subsequently ordered three more.
