Swiss wood connects

At the narrowest point in the Simmental, directly on the Simme, lies the small hamlet of Weissenburg. It has about 220 inhabitants and belongs to the municipality of Därstetten. Since last year, a new bridge construction has been crossing the river, connecting the hamlet – like the previous bridge – with the rural areas of the neighbouring municipality of Oberwil.

As the roadway is subject to heavy loads, six-centimetre thick oak planks were chosen for the pavement. All wearing parts were designed by n’H Lungern to be replaceable. This is particularly relevant for the road surface and the scrape board – also made of oak.
