Degree of Freedom is an international civil and structural engineering practice with offices in Oslo, Valencia and Athens. We design bridges, buildings and special structures, in timber, steel, and concrete. We are architecture oriented and innovative.
The existing Oxberg bridge was built in 1900 and crosses the Spjutmosjön river in Oxberg, Sweden. The bridge is 101m long in three spans (27+47+27m) and is an arch-truss bridge including both railway and road. The bridge is narrow, has high maintenance costs and there is a need to split rail and road traffic on two separate bridges.
For this reason, WSP Sweden asked NUNO architects and Degree of Freedom to develop a possible solution for two new links crossing the river.
The new proposal developed is to build two independent bridges, one for road (80m span) and one for rail traffic (102m span), both as network arch bridges as this has proven to be an effective system for these spans.
We have therefore investigated the feasibility, designed and calculated the cost of network arches for both bridges.
