"Gablenz Brücke" – Kiel, Germany

The old “Gablenz Brücke“ has dominated the urban landscape in the centre of Kiel - Germany since 1910. Due to the increase in traffic volume, in 2009 the bridge was replaced by the 340m long steel girder bridge. It consists of a single arch over the railway tracks and it is approachable from both sides. Abutments and supports, which include staircases and ramps for the disabled, define the structure at both ends. The new structure is an inspiring replacement for the old landmark of the city. A new, modern bridge has been erected as a sensible response to the history of the area, while at the same time it fulfills the conditions of modern traffic volume.
