The original pier and cobbles have no rigid connection which leads to the low safety. The original bridge level is under the max water level. The original bridge is low in security and poor in comfort due to the big diffference in height with the side paths. The original bridge floor and pier have no connection which results in the unstability of the whole structure.

Concept • Big difference in height between original bridge floor and the surroundings • Can’t being used during the flood period

construction procedure • The loads on bridge floor transmit to the cantilever support. • The support and bridge pier work together as a self-balancing system. • The size and form of components may be further optimized if needed.
