Based on a design by Aronsohn raadgevende ingenieurs of Rotterdam, De Kok Staalbouw built a steel structure for a 96-metre-long footbridge. This bridge forms the link between Sophia Children's Hospital, Dijkzigt Academic Hospital, and the medical faculty.
This bridge type allows for a large free span. The clearance height under the bridge is 12 metres, using only one pylon. The twisted footbridge is a technical tour de force in steel. In total, 230 tonnes of steel were used to construct the bridge.
