The Rosenstein Bridge in Stuttgart, which crosses the Neckar, is no longer stable and will be closed to traffic with immediate effect. The city of Stuttgart announced on Thursday that pedestrians and cyclists can continue to use the bridge. The blocking only applies to trucks, cars, buses and trains. According to the information, the civil engineering office had previously determined that the statics of the prestressed concrete bridge were no longer suitable for traffic under full load. Significant traffic delays are expected.

The Rosenstein Bridge in Stuttgart, which crosses the Neckar, is no longer stable and will be closed to traffic with immediate effect. The city of Stuttgart announced on Thursday that pedestrians and cyclists can continue to use the bridge. The blocking only applies to trucks, cars, buses and trains. According to the information, the civil engineering office had previously determined that the statics of the prestressed concrete bridge were no longer suitable for traffic under full load. Significant traffic delays are expected.

An expert opinion should now clarify how the bridge can at least partially be reopened in a few months. According to the civil engineering office, however, a new building is ultimately necessary. This was preceded by an examination based on a circular from the Federal Ministry of Transport, as a city spokesman said. At the end of 2021, this had informed the municipalities about possible damage to this type of building.
