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.
In Wroclaw, the ninth edition of the Bridge Competition was held for design and construction companies operating in the bridge industry in Poland. The competition is non-commercial, and the prizes awarded are a recognition of the innovative approach in the design and construction of bridges.
