  9. 9. MISSING LINK How does it work ?
  10. 10. MISSING LINK Cable Main girder Steel cantilevers RC - Slab with cross girders Main girder Pier Cable Pier Steel cantilevers
  11. 11. MISSING LINK What does it offer ? Crash barrier Crash barrier EXHAUST ILLUMINATION Sunlight NOISE
  12. 12. MISSING LINK Construction Phase 1 <ul><li>Foundation </li></ul><ul><li>Piers </li></ul><ul><li>Pylons </li></ul>
  13. 13. MISSING LINK Construction Phase 2 <ul><li>Main girders with cantilever method and temporary support cables </li></ul><ul><li>Temporary bracings between main girders </li></ul>
  14. 14. MISSING LINK Construction Phase 3 <ul><li>Prestressing of main girders </li></ul>
  15. 15. MISSING LINK Construction Phase 4 <ul><li>RC – Slab and cross girders with moveable formwork </li></ul>
  16. 16. MISSING LINK Conclusion <ul><li>Well responding design for this special location </li></ul><ul><li>A “Classic” structural system interpreted in a new way </li></ul><ul><li>The structure forms a gentle urban orientation mark </li></ul><ul><li>Holistic design concept  no additional elements </li></ul><ul><li>Semi integral construction  low life-cycle-costs </li></ul><ul><li>Construction “over” the river  minimum disturbance </li></ul>
