Status:In use (last checked, 2013)
Main cables:Wire (steel)
Suspended spans:3
Main span:378m
Side spans:2
Deck width:52.8m (after retrofit)
Notes
  • Substantial retrofit completed 1994, doubled the width of the bridge and towers and added extra cable. The bridge's 52.8 meter width makes this the widest catenary suspension bridge in the world (the Boston's Zakim-Bunker Hill cable-stayed bridge is wider) with ten vehicular lanes (eight lanes for highway and two service lanes) and two lanes for pedestrians and bicycles. It may also be the only large suspension bridge with three main cables. The unusual proportion of deck width to main span (52.8 meters/378 meters) is also interesting.
  • Replaced 1938 (suspension bridge) - Rodenkirchen, Germany.

Main span:~73.72m
Deck width:3.5m
Notes
  • This footbridge is "convertible" because it can be raised to make way for boats. The backstays are shortened using jacks causing the towers to tilt back and the deck to arch up and out of the way. Eckhard Bernstorff notes, "the deck (weight 150 tons) has 14 segments. When the towers tilt back by shortening the main cables about 2.5 meters, the deck lifts 9 meters."
