The conceptual study of the engineering firm str.ucture based in Stuttgart could possibly be the world’s first lightweighting green bridge of this size. The idea takes an existing five meter wide concrete bridge over the A8 motorway near Stuttgart and expands it with two wire nets to a total width of 45 meters. Compared to other covered tunnel designs, this approach would reduce the material requirements by 90 percent and cut construction costs in half. More Information
