The new by-pass road west of Naestved crosses the Naestved Navigation Channel on a swing bridge. The bridge, which is the largest movable bridge in operation in Denmark, was inaugurated in September 1997. Between two and five ships are daily passing the navigation channel.

It was a priority for the design concept of the bridge that it matched the landscape and the environment, and the valley should as far as possible be lead continuously through the bridge system.

The swing bridge consists of 2 equal rotating sections which carry a two  lane highway and a twin bike lane crossing the 44 m wide navigation channel.

The steel superstructure consists of two 49 m long box girder sections that can rotate towards the clock. The rotating sections are each supported on a roller bearing with a diameter of 5 m. The roller bearings are placed on two concrete supports at a distance of 56 m. The bridge is operated from a panel placed on one of the bridge sections giving the operator a full view over the road and ship traffic.

The machinery for rotating the bridge sections is located inside the circular hollow supports, and the control room for the bridge operation, which contains guidance and survey systems, and an emergency generator is located inside the southern abutment.

Mestervig Airport

The AFIS Tower built in Mestersvig Airport in Northeast Greenland in 1977, was a special challenge as it had to be built in just 3 months during the summer time to late October. The tower was designed as “builder’s element kit” which had to be transported to Mestersvig Airport by the one ship that arrived to the East coast every summer.

The new service centre in Hundige supplements the existing operational preparation facilities in Taastrup, in such a way that DSB city trains in the future are capable of delivering a better city train product for their passengers.

Baldersbrønde Pedestrian Steel Bridge

ISC has for the Municipality of Høje Taastrup designed a new pedestrian steel bridge crossing Roskildevej at Baldersbrønde. The original steel bridge was hit by a truck where the driver had forgotten to lower the crane. Thus a replacement of the bridge was necessary.

Pedestrian Bridges, Gladsaxe Ring Road And Fredericia

The pedestrian bridge crossing Gladsaxe Ring Road next to Buddinge has been established to obtain a safe way to Gladsaxe Senior School. Gladsaxe Ring Road is a four-lane road with a central strip, which is why the bridge is carried out with a span of 2 x 17 m.

Odins Bridge

The new bridge crossing the Odense Canal on the island Funen Denmark is named Odins Bridge. Odin was a god in Nordic mythology and gave the name to the city of Odense. The bridge has closed a long missed gap in the infrastructure of the road system surrounding Odense which is the third largest city in Denmark.

6 Bridges To The Island Of The New Opera House, CPH

The Dock Island by the Naval Shipyard used to belong to the Danish Naval Fleet. In connection with the plan for locating the new Opera House, the Dock Island was separated from the adjacent islands called the South Island and the North Island by 2 artificial canals.

North River Bridge, Thule

The new North River Bridge is supposedly the most northerly built bridge of that size at the latitude of 77°. The bridge with 60 m span crosses the North River, which runs parallel with the runway in Thule Airport. The bridge replaces a shorter 23 m span truss bridge, which was destroyed during a flood in the autumn of 2001.
