Designed by Ipv Delft, the bridge looks like a flying saucer that illuminates the inner circle in the evening. The company's underlying vision, is that a good design should be simple, effective and inspired.
The Hovenring, a steel bridge hovers above a huge intersection of Heerbaan and Meerenakkerweg, marking the entrance way to the cities of Eindhoven and Veldhoven. With the development of new housing and growing traffic an innovative solution was needed.
Hovenring replaces the usual combination of cycle paths and bike-friendly traffic lights that are commonplace throughout the Netherlands, providing total segregation from traffic for people navigating the junction on foot or by bike.
