Bike Path Bridge Minden (Glacis Bridge)

The glacis bridge across the Weser in Minden creates the entry portal into the city. With a soft curve it connects the southern portion of the right Weser bank and the large parking lot Kanzlers Weide with the inner city.
The laterally arranged and back-stayed masts of the self-anchored suspension bridge bend over the 3,50 m wide and 25 cm deep concrete platform. Spaced apart 105 m, the fully-locked suspension cables connect to the top of the mast and thereby allow for a bent plan layout that responds to the surrounding path network, without having the hanger cables impinge on the clearance gauge of the bridge. Through its minimized cross-section the bridge achieves a particular filigree quality and transparency that allows for an unhindered view of the Porta Westfalica.
