Useful life: 80 years

Actually, it should only be an emergency bridge, the old Stillaubbrücke over the Grosse Entlen. It was built in 1996 after a storm. But the stable makeshift became a permanent condition. Because the narrow bridge near Finsterwald in the Entlebuch definitely no longer met today’s requirements, it was replaced by a wood-concrete composite structure for heavy goods traffic.

The inclined, single span HBV-Bridge is 6.30 meters wide and spans the Grosse Entlen with 24.15 meters. It was assembled from two pre-assembled timber constructions, each weighing 23 tons. The main supporting elements are six timber beams with GSA®-HBV from the neue Holzbau AG.
