Public transport bridge with pedestrian and cycle paths to Kienlesberg Ulm
Start of a new connection
The new tram line 2 in Ulm from the centre to the Science City crosses several tracks and an access road to the north of the station. A distance of 270 metres has to be crossed. Together with Knight Architects from London, KREBS+KIEFER created a bridge that came first in the design competition.
In line with the spatial situation, the bridge is a geometrically non-uniform structure. It is compatible with the listed Neutor Bridge located nearby and follows in the design tradition of structures in Ulm. The superstructure, a graceful steel framework, was welded together on an assembly platform above and was brought into position by means of a cyclic sliding process. The first and last stages were separated by just eight months. In close collaboration with the body responsible for the tramway construction and with DB AG, no milestones in the schedule were missed.
