The Golden Guirlande | Good Fences #10

Today my husband sent me some pictures of the Golden Guirlande. This new bridge is built over the city canal, especially for pedestrians in the city of Tiel. The modern bridge should give a better connection between the shopping area around the Dutch supermarket Albert Heijn and the beautiful old downtown.

Gouden slinger
Vandaag stuurde mijn man me in zijn lunchpauze een paar foto's van de gouden slinger. Deze brug is gebouwd over het Stadskanaal speciaal voor voetgangers, in de stad Tiel. De brug moet voor een betere verbinding geven  tussen boodschappengebied rond Albert Heijn en het station รจn de mooie oude binnenstad.
 

The real name of this bridge is: De ZocherbrugZocher is the name of three generations landscape architects here in The Netherlands.
 
I also have an interesting video. Click HERE for the bridge under construction!
 
De Zocherbrug
De echte naam voor deze brug is de Zocherbrug. Genoemd naar de landschapsarchitect K.G. Zocher. Klik op de link voor een leuk filmpje van het plaatsen van  de Gouden Slinger over de stadsgracht in Tiel.

  4. That bridge is very attractive and useful. I always felt a bridge over troubled waters was a good thing, but any bridge is helpful.
