    BAN Kreatif - Hovenring: Tempat Berbasikal Tergantung Di Atas Jalan Raya

    Kalau tgk la kan. Sebuah negara maju, apa yg maju dari segi transport mereka. Semestinya pengangkutan awam yang superb. Setiap pelusuk tempat ada sambungan pengangkutan awam. Malaysia target 2020 negara maju. Ada dalam 6 tahun lagi. Tapi negeri yang maju saja ada pengangkutan awam yang lengkap. Negeri yang kaya minyak like terengganu pun takde keretapi. Heran aku, why not tarik je landansan daripada wakaf bharu kelantan then sambung to kuala terengganu. Dah sambungkan 2 buah bandar.

    The Hovenring, di sebuah Dutch city, Eindhoven. Satu kabel circular yang dibuat khas untuk pembongceng basikal. So that, penunggang basikal terselamat daripada kemalangan. Diameter bulatan tu lingkungan 72 meter.

    Like a flying saucer, the steel bridge hoovers above the Heerbaan/Meerenakkerweg intersection, its impressive pylon marking the entrance way to the cities of Eindhoven and Veldhoven. There used to be a level crossing here, but the development of a nearby housing estate meant the intersection needed changing in order to cope with growing traffic. As Eindhoven City Council refrains from cyclist underpasses and didn’t want a level crossing roundabout either, they asked Dutch bridge specialist IPV Delft to look at possible solutions. A circular cable-stayed bridge soon appeared to be the best option.

    Building the circular bridge proved to be more difficult than expected. When the bridge was opened in December 2011, after less than a year of construction, the suspension cables vibrated so much that the bridge had to be closed for safety reasons. Hovenring was finally opened to be public on June 29th, 2012.
