Fallersleber Tor Bridge

The Fallersleber Tor Bridge in Braunschweig is an inner-city structure over the river Oker. It serves car and tram traffic. The bridge was designed as a modern interpretation and reminiscence of the Möller Bridge previously located at this site. Werner Sobek was responsible for the structural engineering of this project.

Reminiscence of the Previous Bridge

In order to obtain a light and economical structure, the double-curved cross-section of the prestressed concrete frame bridge was optimally designed in accordance with the stress course. Special attention was paid to the integration of the media channels: these serve not only as cladding tubes but also as a load-bearing structure within the concrete cross-section.
