Footbridge over the river Secchia

Sassuolo - 2007-2009

The footbridge over Secchia is a 5 span cable stayed bridge, 3 with spans of 40 metres and two of 20 metres, for a total of 160 metres, supported by 4 intermediate yards and by two extremity shoulders.

The larger spans are supported, near the centre line, by 2 sets of cables, each afferent to one of the adjacent yards.

The yards are planimetrically positioned, in an alternating manner (left-right) compared to the planking; in this way, besides architecturally characterizing the work, they give more stiffness to the horizontal floor.

The planking is supported by a reticular spatial structure, formed by a lower and two upper currents, as well as the connecting diagonal elements; the frameworks of the reticular are made of tubular metal elements.

Above the mentioned reticular structure, secondary frameworks are positioned to support the planking – walkway.
