Design team PONTING – PIPENBAHER CONSULTING ENGINEERS won the 1. prize in the competition for the architectural and structural solution of the new Highway Bridge and new parallel Pedestrian Bridge over river Krka near Novo mesto, Slovenia.
Construction started on a new footbridge designed by Ponting. Footbridge Tremerje is a space truss structure in a form of a suspension bridge, giving it its unique character. The bridge crosses the River Savinja in a span of 80 m. Together with the back spans which tie the bridge to its solid fundations, the bridge is 92 m long.
A new footbridge from Ponting reached almost the end of its design stage. The new wooden suspension footbridge (span 86 m), connecting Slovenia (Ceršak) and Austria (Murfeld), will be the main link over the border Mura River, along the future international cyclists path between the bordercrossing at Šentilj and the downstream bridge in Črnci near Gornja Radgona. The building permit will be issued yet this year, the construction of the bridge is scheduled for the year 2019.
