Abstract

Category: Technical Excellence

The Val de Vie Berg River Bridge is a unique bridge in many respects. It is the first privately owned bridge of this scale in South Africa. Due to the location and association of this bridge with the prestigious Val de Vie Estate, significant architectural thought went into the planning and design of this bridge. The bridge has already become a destination in itself, more than merely fulfilling the purpose of access. It stands as a work of civil engineering art while effortlessly blending in with the architectural style of the estate it serves. The bridge is mainly used as access for residents of the Val de Vie Estate from the Stellenbosch area over the Berg River, and to also connect the two phases of the Val de Vie Estate.
