This modern pedestrian bridge has the capacity of turning miracles into technological possibilities – the Moses Bridge (or Loopgraafbrug in the native language). This bridge looks more like a trench than the usual conception of a bridge, but it gets you across no matter how you call it. Located in the Netherlands, the fascinating bridge parts the waters surrounding a 17th century Dutch fort, allowing visitors to experience a whole new perspective of the shallow moat – too deep to march across and too shallow to boat across – that surrounds Fort de Roovere. Designed by RO and AD Architecture company, the bridge is made from sustainable FSC and PEFC certified Accoya wood. The bridge was treated with a nontoxic coating that protects it from fungal decay, extending its durability. Scroll down to see a video showing the interesting construction and visit Fort de Roovere to enjoy this unique experience.  Its designers says that “the bridge enhances the accessibility of the restored fort and  landscape and contributes in unique ways to the social task of strengthening the recreational side of nature. It fulfills a natural, educational function.”
