As a pilot project for IBA (Internationale Bauausstellung / International Architecture Exhibition) a new bridge for pedestrians and cyclists was built in Oberhausen-Ripshorst.
The Ripshorst bridge is a welded steel structure. The deck is supported by an arch-tube which spans about 78 m over the Rhein-Herne-Channel. According to the bended deck the arch is not only curved in elevation, but also double-curved in plan, in order to the different directions of the struts. The tubes are connected with steel castings.
