linking areas - Temporary Bridge
2010

A temporary bridge is an emergency bridge that makes temporary links wherever needed. Either because the permanent bridge is under construction or to transport goods and people form one side to another at places where there is no bridge. The military have highly specialized systems for this purpose. The most used are ‘ribbon bridges’, a modular, aluminum alloy, continuous floating bridge system consisting of interior and ramp bays. Bridge bays, which are carried in a folded position, automatically open upon entering the water to form a 6.7 meter section of bridge. With these temporary systems it is possible to make the much talked about bridge between Amsterdam North and the city center in a fast, cheap and simple way.
