Hoofddorp | Bicycle bridge

  • Project number: KW07-06
  • Length: 19m
  • Class: 5kn/m2 + service vehicle
  • Construction year: 2022
  • Client: Municipality of Haarlemmermeer
  • In cooperation with: Anton Bouw

A 19 meter long bicycle bridge has been placed in Hoofddorp. The previous wooden bridge had extended its lifecycle and a replacement solution has to be found. The municipality of Haarlemmermeer chose for a FRP bridge from FiberCore® Europe due to the low level of maintenance needed and the long lifetime of minimal 100 years. The handrails are also made from FRP in order to diminish the maintenance needed in the future.

This bicycle bridge also has an increased level of safety as there is a height and color difference between the pedestrian path and the bicycle path, increasing the clarity of where people should walk and where they should bike. This project has been carried out in cooperation with Anton Bouw.
