German Bridge Construction Award 2018 at Bleichinsel Bridge
In 2018, the Bleichinsel Bridge in Heilbronn was won by Schlaich Bergermann Partner. The bridge that spans the Alt-Neckar connects the city center of Heilbronn with a new residential area being created in the course of the 2019 Federal Horticultural Show. The composite structure with very flat inclined V-shaped columns makes it possible to omit the disturbing pillar structures in the course of the river. The four inclined support struts on each side of the bank are guided to only one support point, which has a statically favorable effect on the horizontal support forces and, overall, led to reduced foundation costs.
