How can we design safe and sustainable active travel infrastructure for our towns and cities? [Video]

In the Netherlands, Almere’s eye-catching Circle Bridge is a 240 -metre-long active travel bridge offering safe passage for pedestrians and cyclists over a busy road and canal, while providing spectacular views of the nearby forest. The Circle Bridge is constructed out of weathering steel, with reclaimed timber used for the handrails. The bridge sections are all bolted together to the substructure to ease disassembly and future reuse. The bridge has been designed to be accessible by a range of users featuring a circular ramp, as well as a spiral staircase and a glass lift shaft by the bus stop.
