Special features

Two filigree bridges, identical in construction, in the scenic small town of Oloron Ste. Marie at the foot of the Pyrenees in the South of France. They are built of a fish-belled truss with the top girder surface consisting of glued laminated timber beams made of Douglas fir. The diagonal braces and the lower girder are made of steel. With its low static height of only 1.50 m, the bridges have a very slim dimension.
