Constantine-broen

Byen Constantine blev grundlagt i år 203 f. Kr., og har med sin placering 640 meter over havet, omgivet af kløfter, en lang og stolt tradition for brobyggeri. Den 800 meter lange skråstagsbro er derfor designet med særligt fokus på at finde en udformning der både kan videreføre Constantines brotradition og stå som et stærkt nutidigt monument i det smukke klippelandskab.

Da folk både færdes og bor direkte under broen har designteamet yderligere lagt stor vægt på udformningen af dens underside. Formen er let og slank med en strukturelt fordelagtig ribbestruktur der er visuelt interessant uden at virke pågående.

 

Constantine Bridge

The concrete cable-stayed bridge will become a pivotal structure within the historical and hilly context of the City of Constantine. The bridge is designed with Constantine's pride in bridge construction in mind: it will be a beautiful monument from a distance, as well as a fine structure to walk and drive across.

The 130-metre high pylons will be a reference point for people in the area, and the bridge will be visually exciting, day and night. The winding roads leading to the bridge reveal spectacular views from several points along the way. The bridge is relatively wide with two lanes and a sidewalk on each side. The pylons are centrally located, separating the carriageways to either side.

The new bridge crosses the ravine above the river Rhummel to connect two important areas of the city, the ONU area and the Mansourah plateau. The bridge is an integral part of a series of infrastructure works intending to resolve the serious congestion problems plaguing Constantine.
