Sneek Bridge, The Netherlands
Accoya® wood can be used to replace traditional construction materials such as steel. It was used for a unique heavy traffic road bridge at Sneek in the Netherlands. The bridge, measuring 20 metres high by 40 metres long has a cycle lane and two traffic lanes for road traffic up to 65 tonnes. Accoya® was laminated into large sections measuring 1080 x 1400 mm to create this innovative structure.
The first bridge was craned into position in December 2008 and the second bridge was completed in 2010.
