In Stuttgart, the state capital of Baden-Württemberg, an innovative timber-concrete composite construction method is being used for a 70-meter-long pedestrian and cycle bridge over the Seeblickweg between the districts of Mühlhausen and Bad Cannstatt. Carbon concrete replaces conventional steel reinforcement. The bridge is intended to create a connection for pedestrians and cyclists.
The construction of this bridge proved to be a challenge due to the large dimensions of the two free-form bridge bodies made of glulam beams. Initially, no company could be found for this challenging task. Balteschwiler AG from Laufenburg, Switzerland, was finally able to successfully complete the processing using its “TW-Concept-Line”, which went into operation in September.
