Stokkenbrug Cycle bridge, Purmerend

Bayards supplied a 130-meter-long aluminium bridge deck for the Stokkenbrug in Purmerend. This bridge deck with a special anti-wear layer is resistant to thawing and freezing and is very low in maintenance. The cycle and pedestrian bridge is constructed of fully prefabricated parts of 16 meters long and assembled on-site. For ecological reasons, Jord den Hollander opted for the material aluminium in his striking design. The municipality of Purmerend was looking for a distinctive bridge that didn’t disrupt the experience of the Weidevenne nature reserve,  and this design has certainly succeeded in doing so!
