Treebridge - Amstelveen, NL

Key themes

Amstelveen is known as Europe's greenest city. The municipality in the province of North Holland is famous for its Dr. Jac. P. Thijssepark, the international phenomenon was the first wild garden in the Netherlands.
The bridge therefore serves as a green icon, an entrance to the city center, and symbolizes the internationally known green identity of the city.

Above the noise and traffic violence of the A9, the bridge will provide a calm and green connection
between the north and the south. The Bomenbrug will also fill in the void in the scenic line of the Green Structure Plan of Amstelveen.
Besides cyclists and pedestrians, plants and animals can now safely cross the road, and the green structure of the city will be further enhanced.

The support points of the bridge are shaped like big pots in which trees grow. These tree pots in which native-oaks and a multistemmed flew grow, form a unique landmark in the national road system.
