Degree of Freedom is an international civil and structural engineering practice with offices in Oslo, Valencia, Gdansk and Athens. We design bridges, buildings and special structures, in timber, steel, and concrete. We are architecture oriented and innovative.
The new 4 span (20.38m, 22m, 22m and 17.48m) cycle and pedestrian bridge reuses the original stone pier and abutment structure of the existing bridge. It has a free width for pedestrian and cycle traffic of 7m.
A composite steel and concrete bridge deck is proposed- a 2m deep steel frame module for each span. A composite with a continuous 300mm lightweight concrete top slab. The concrete slab also provides the finished bridge surface and will be laid to fall to the edge beams to allow for drainage. To aid erection 100mm precast concrete panels act as permanent formwork for 200mm in-situ concrete. The slab is supported by diagonal cross members (HUP 300×300 + ½IPE400) and longitudinal edge beams (UPE300). At the centre of the frame, a cruciform strut of variable cross section transfers the loads to the diagonal tension members-aq 300x30mm flat steel plate.
The steel frame modules are designed to have shop-welded nodes with connecting straight members (of transportable length).
