The 60 ton bridge with its span of over 32½ meters is formed by two, approximately 20 meter high, curved wooden trusses.
The trusses consist of curved and wrenched wooden push and pull bars that are maximum 1.080mm x 1.200mm long.
The curved trusses are connected at the top with a hinged connection by means of a steel connecting hinge.
The bridge deck hangs between the trusses. The bridge deck is completed by two giant wooden laminated Accoya girders of maximum 1,080 mm x 14,000 mm and 32½ meters in length.
All of the wood used is from Accoya. The finishing coat has a light pigmented wood-stain in order to prevent molding.
The service life is over 80 years with a maintenance cycle that is comparable to steel bridges.
