The pedestrian bridge allows connections between platforms, public space such as streets and squares and even buildings if desired. The Markenburg pedestrian bridge has a fairly timeless look, but most 1: 1 examples were built in the 1990s and shortly after. The Markenburg pedestrian bridge is sufficiently wide to also accommodate any layout such as planters (for example: 01DOR08 or 01DOR24), a kiosk (01RHP17) or departure states (for example: 01RHP08). The roof of the pedestrian bridge can also be omitted if desired. We also find examples of this in the 1: 1 environment.
Coupling segments are used for 3 things. With their legs they keep the bridge sections (spans) at a height. Headboards can also be connected to the coupling segments, which neatly closes the footbridge. Finally, escalators can be connected to the coupling segments. That way, the miniature travelers from the street or the platform can reach the passerelle. The coupling pieces are usually on platforms, a green strip, on sidewalks or between the tracks. Coupling segments come in variations, the "normal" and "long" variant. The difference in height in the legs is the same as the difference between the normal pavement height and the Markenburg platform height. The number in the name of this coupling segment represents the number of connections it knows for escalators and stairs.
