Safety expansion, Voest Bridge Linz, Austria
The urban highway bridge is getting two new bridges (bypasses). The aim of the bypass bridges is to reduce traffic at the Danube crossing by separating the traffic flows: drivers coming to or going from Linz are separated from those who are just passing through. Once both bridges are completed, only the transit traffic will still cross the main bridge. Furthermore, each bypass bridge will get a pedestrian pavement and a bicycle road. The bypasses are expected to open to traffic in 2020.
