Pyhäjoki Railway Bridge

Finland

When renovating the two railway bridges, Savsilta and Pyhäjoki, precast panels were used for the impact railings. 

Bridges are, for some reason, regarded as a secondary type of construction in comparison to buildings. When I got the opportunity to design these bridges, I decided to get all the fun out of it! The bridges would not have been created as such had I not seen the possibility of influencing the quality of the built environment and if Ramboll had not grasped this opportunity, also."

“The bridge railing pattern contains a riddle. The lines and full stop marks mirror fast rail traffic and the stops along the way.”
