Pedestrian Crossing JongMëtt, Junglinster (LUX)

Work on the open space design in the centre of JongMëtt has reached another milestone – the pedestrian bridge crossing the renaturalised "Schwarze Ernz". Measuring two metres in width, it spans the stream across 16 metres, thereby connecting Rue Hiel to the "Charly’s Wee" residential courtyards with the new park.


Structurally, the footbridge consists of a galvanised steel supporting structure with two main, and 21 secondary beams. It was delivered prefabricated and mounted on site on the concrete supports.


The footbridge blends in with the rest of the urban furniture not only in terms of design, but also through the materials used: In addition to wooden decking made from durable and entirely organic Kebony wood, certified with the Nordic Ecolabel "Swan", its railings are hot-dip galvanised and powder-coated steel. Directly adjacent, a small public square on the Rue Hiel side, equipped with a bench, lighting and railings, offers residents and visitors a pleasant and quiet space to linger.


Once the wooden decking and railings have been connected and safe access is possible, the pedestrian crossing will be open to the public just in time for spring.
