A Suspended Bicycle Roundabout over a Highway

Bicycles are a common form of everyday transportation in the Netherlands, so it’s no surprise that this architectural delight can be found there between the cities of Eindhoven and Veldhoven. How can a large number of bicyclists cross a highway without having to stop for cars? With this suspended roundabout designed by IPV Delft.

The Hovenring, as it’s called, is a ring of bike paths about 236 feet in diameter. A central pylon holds steel cables anchoring the bridge in place. Entering and exiting the roundabout is simple and far easier than using the straight crossings that the Hovenring replaced.
