Overpass Sonce in Rogaška Slatina

Designed exclusively for pedestrians and cyclists, the overpass Sonce provides a safe connection between the Rogaška Slatina promenade and the foothill of Tržaški hrib. The new overpass is of significant importance for a tourist destination in which the need for outdoor recreational areas and experiences is even greater.

The efficient, environmentally responsible structure and attractive lighting of the overpass encourage people to walk and cycle. Two additional, vertical accesses with panoramic elevators will be particularly welcome to people with disabilities and the elderly.

The transparent curved steel structure has one larger, 43-meter-long arch span, spanning a main regional road and railway. Ponting Bridges are the designers of the new, 177.5-meter-long and 3.5-meter-wide overpass structure for pedestrian and cyclist. Works were carried out by contractors Adriaplan and Petrič.
