Last week, the City of Ghent’s announced that Ney & Partners won the design competition for the pedestrian and bicycle bridge over the Watersportbaan. The new bridge is an important missing link in the bicycle network. The new bridge is a hybrid structure that can be interpreted as a beam bridge on the one hand and an a tied arch on the other. The 78 m long transparent structure does disturb as little as possible the deep perspectives over the Watersportbaan. The integration of the bridge into the landscape and the landscape design are a collaboration with OMGEVING.
