Adjusted to an urban context
The position of Munksjö Bridge requires a clear, yet transparent structure to define an urban space, which maintains open views from the city over the water.

The position of the Munksjö Bridge between the city centre and the open lake is a controlling principle for the design of this urban construction. It is a cable-supported beam bridge, and this makes a thin bridge deck possible, ensuring generous clearance for rowers.
The bridge has a very slender deck suspended by steel rods from five pairs of pylons of tubular steel. The railings have built-in light fittings that illuminate footpaths and cycle paths as well as the roadway.
