The footbridge links the new car park P305 and the premises of the Daimler production plant in Sindelfingen.
Geometric constraints, such as the layout of the car park, the Gottlieb-Daimler-Strasse over which the bridge spans, as well as the network of paths on the factory premises, required a straight structure that crosses the traffic lanes at an oblique angle. The bridge is accessed via a set of stairs to the east, while on the west side the crossing leads to the second level of the car park.
The superstructure, which is equipped with a heated deck, has been designed as a hollow steel box with five spans resting on slender pier walls made of plate steel. A slender Y-column sets a visual highlight at the bridge centre thus emphasizing the clear and modest design of the structure.
