Accoya Wood Used for Heavy Traffic Road Bridges


The Netherlands

Sneek Bridge

Sneek Bridge

Accoya wood can be used to replace traditional construction materials such as steel for various structural applications.


In the Netherlands, it was used for a unique heavy traffic road bridge at Sneek. The bridge, measuring 20 metres high by 40 metres long has a cycle lane and two traffic lanes for road traffic up to 65 tonnes. Accoya wood was laminated into large sections measuring 1080 x 1400 mm to create this innovative structure.


The first bridge was craned into position in December 2008 and the second bridge was completed in 2010.
