Bike Touring Highlight (Segment)
The Fleher bridge, also Rhine bridge Dusseldorf-Flehe, between Dusseldorf and Neuss is a motorway bridge (with pedestrians and wheel lanes parallel to the carriageways) over the Rhine, the A 46 from the left bank of the Rhine region (Rhein-Kreis Neuss, Aachen region, Heinsberg district , Belgium, Netherlands) with the Bergische Land (Wuppertal, Solingen, Hagen) and the south of Düsseldorf. It also forms the southern part of the Dusseldorf motorway quadrangle and is named after the district of Flehe the city.
The structure has three lanes and one hard shoulder per direction of travel and on both sides a 2.75 m wide walkway and cycle path. The bridge does not cross the Rhine at a right angle to protect the water catchment area of the old waterworks Flehe.
The Fleher bridge has the highest bridge pylon in Germany and the largest span of all cable-stayed bridges in Germany. At its completion, with a main span of 368 m, it was also the world's longest stretched single-span cable-stayed bridge. Source: Wikipedia
