This paper describes the design of the aluminium structure of a bicycle path which is mounted on an existing steel bridge. The benefits of aluminium, being low self weight, freedom in design obtained by extrusion and good corrosion resistance were maximal utilized. One of the main drawbacks of aluminium, being the low modulus of elasticity, caused that special attention was paid to stability and vibration of the deck. The paper shows how structural aluminium and steel can be combined in one structure.
