FRIEDERICH BAYER BRIDGE

Project address: Rio de Janeiro, Brazil


The bridge, designed and built for the passage of pedestrians and cyclists, is 90 meters long.

This bridge, with a metallic structure, is supported on the riverbanks and on two circular islands, planted with vegetation typical of the flora of the region.


Located on of the Rio Pinheiros (Pinheiros river) branch, which crosses the city of São Paulo, the bridge opens in the middle to allow the passage of cleaning and maintenance boats on the channel that connects the river to the Guarapiranga dam.

The bridge made it possible to implement a bike path of about 3,000 meters on the banks of the Pinheiros river, extending the existing one... It has also created quick access for workers from Bayer and other nearby industries, who, coming down from the metro station, can reach their workplaces in about 10 to 15 minutes, against the almost 40 minutes they spent before the construction of the bridge.
