Case studies – Stainless steel pedestrian bridges

Stainless steel bridges are becoming increasingly more common. Here are a number of case studies showcasing the successful use of stainless steel in the construction of pedestrian bridges. 

The Helix Bridge - The Helix Bridge is a landmark pedestrian bridge in Singapore, comprising a walkway surrounded by opposing double helix structures made from stainless steel. 

Malmo’s bridge - Malmo’s redeveloped former harbor district is a model of the Swedish approach to modern urban architecture. As part of this architectural concept, a pedestrian bridge 40m in length and 6.5 m in width, was designed and made from various grades of stainless steel. It was prefabricated in Poland and transported to Sweden by sea and road in a spectacular journey. 

Trumpf Campus bridge - Like a net frozen in mid-air, a striking footbridge in southern Germany is making a statement about minimalism. This gossamer structure is only possible thanks to the unique characteristics of 2205 duplex stainless steel.
