IGA 1993 – Bridge at Train Station North

© Gert Elsner

Two bridges (“Train Station North” and “Heilbronner Strasse”) are the connection between two parks, crossing a huge railway area and a highly frequented main road. They were built for the International Garden Exhibition (IGA).
The mast of the bigger bridge at Train Station North (“Brünner Steg”) is placed in the crossing point of three arms, so that it is balanced only by the main cables, which lead in three pairs to its top. A saddle for guiding the cables over the mast top would have resulted in a very unshaped appearance. This is why the six cable halves of the bridge at train station north are linked in pairs and anchored to the mast top by short single cables.
The pedestrian bridge crosses streets, light rail and railway tracks.
