Bypass Gemert Noord-Om – From 3D printed bridge to slide-in roundabout

The Netherlands

The province of North Brabant asked for sustainable and innovative solutions for the northern bypass at Gemert. The aim was to improve accessibility to the region as well as quality of life and traffic safety, all with the final aim to boost the region’s economy. BAM Infra’s solutions included a prefabricated roundabout which is slid into place and a concrete bicycle bridge that is 3D printed in situ – a world first in concrete construction! The bicycle bridge measures 8m in length, 3.5m in width and its deck is 0.9m thick.
