Special features

The S-shaped trend of the bridge has a maximum of height gain during a margianal build-up. Another point for the choice of the S-shaped trend is the affinity to the form of the crossed part of the Agger. For such a form and span are steel bracings necessary, which are connected per shore side to one pin pylon. They are olive-green, so the colour match to the natural environment. The filled rod railing is also olive-green and has a handrail out of especially permanent Accoya gluelam. The granite slabs do not need, due to the high dead load, any deposit insurance, therefor a delayed take off without any damages is possible.
