1954 Rodenkirchener
Köln (Cologne), North Rhine Westphalia, Germany (Rhine River)
Bridgemeister ID:458
Structurae ID:0000187
Coordinates:N 50.90135 E 6.99335
Maps:Acme, Google, MapQuest
References:AOB
Principals:Fritz Leonhardt
Use:Vehicular (major highway, with walkway)
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.
