These bridges designed for the EXPO 2000 in Hanover/Germany are fabricated entirely from aluminium. Their salient features are visual lightness, slender elegance and, thanks to pre-fabrication, easy assembly on site. All the bridges have a sophisticated box cross section fabricated from sheet material, complete with integrated frames and stringers. At a number of points the sides of the box section project above deck level to form parapets, resulting in a trough-like cross section of high load capacity.
