Moses bridge

  1. 1. Moses BridgeNetherlands
  2. 2. Creative pedestrian bridge near Fort de Roovere in the Netherlands divides the water like Moses and allows people to safely cross to the other side.Designed by RO&AD architects, this unique trench inspired sunken bridge was constructed out of extremely durable Accoya wood According to the designers, virtually no water spills over the edge because theheight of the water is controlled by two small adjustable ‘dams’ at both sides of the moat. The dams are set at a height to ensure that when the water level rises, the water spills over and into the dams and not into the bridge. In case of a heavy rainstorm, a small pump under the bottom of the bridge evacuates the water.The Moses Bridge was built in about 2 months in the middle of the moat waters by first dredging around the bridge site and then driving sheet piles into the ground
