Type: Wooden bridge: Pedestrian and cycle bridge
Structure: Cable-stayed bridge
Year of production: 2006
Structural engineer: Martinsons Träbroar AB
Supplier: Martinsons Träbroar AB
Fitting several vertical webs and horizontal glulam beams together allows the box cross-section to be built up. The beams are bound together with adhesive and transverse stays.
The webs can be manufactured with a camber to give the bridge a gently curved shape. Box beam bridges have high stiffness and thus are able to handle longer spans.
The deck is sealed with a weatherproofing layer plus asphalt or gravel. Box beam bridges are often made in one as they can have spans of 30 m.
The design and surface treatment is performed in line with the relevant bridge standards and the service life of such a bridge is 80 years.
In contrast to a suspension bridge, a cable-stayed bridge is more dependent on the stiffness of the beams beneath the deck.
The design and surface treatment is performed in line with the relevant bridge standards and the service life of such a bridge is 40-80 years.
