World’s first suspended bicycle path roundabout

 engineering marvel...Hovenring is the World’s first suspended bicycle path roundabout.A 70-metre tall central pylon, 24 steel cables & a circular bridge deck made out of circa approximately 1,000 tons of steel. The cables are attached to the inner side of the bridge deck, right where the bridge deck connects to the circular, concrete counter weight. This helps prevent torsion within the 72-metre diameter bridge deck. To ensure stability, concrete was added to sections of the bridge deck along with M-shaped supports.
