The project

The expressive bicycle path roundabout, suspended from a 70 metres (230 ft) tall central pylon by 24 cables, is the embodiment of a recent municipal policy that encourages cycling intensively.

Committee

The elevated bike path and the ambitious design of the bike roundabout make the rise of bicycle traffic through the traffic hierarchy manifest. The logic of the technical decisions with respect to the construction, in which material and colour are in perfect harmony with each other, leads to a striking floating bicycle roundabout.
