Bladt Industries hands over the Folehaven Bridge to the City of Copenhagen

24/04/2020

The 137-meter-long bicycle and pedestrian bridge, which crosses the Folehaven between Vigerslevvej and Sønderkær, is now completed and has just been handed over to the customer, the City of Copenhagen.

The Folehaven Bridge crosses a traffic junction, and it has been of great importance to everyone that during the entire construction process there would be least possible inconvenience for the daily traffic in the area. Much of the assembly work has therefore taken place in the late evening and early night hours.

-It's not just a bridge we've delivered - it's an architectural gem that the architects Dissing+Weitling have designed. It is really a project where beautiful 3D sketches have been transformed into reality and I am super proud of what we are now delivering to the City of Copenhagen, says Lennart Lynge Larsen, Senior Project Manager, Bladt Industries.

It is with great pride that Bladt Industries now hands over the bridge to the City of Copenhagen.

Bladt Industries is very grateful for the entire project process and not least the unique collaboration that has taken place with the City of Copenhagen and other involved. It is essential for a project that the cooperation behind the scenes works and that everybody works toward common goals.

- Obviously, when we construct a bridge crossing a road, we can't avoid disturbing the traffic in the area, but with our many years of experience and a team of competent project managers, we have managed to deliver a bridge with minimum impact on traffic, says Mads Flintrup, Head of Department, Bladt Industries.

The bicycle and pedestrian bridge is 5.5 meters wide and 137 meters long with a free span over the Folehaven of 42 meters.
