    I'm building this bridge in the new Greenfield district in Doha, and I'm unsure whether to keep it like this, or change it up in any way.
    So I was wondering if I could get some suggestion / feedback from anyone.

    The bridge will have a T-shape when it's finished, and I was thinking of doing the same roofed style on the 3rd end.
    I'm also considering adding more stilts/supports to it, to visually add more strength to the bridge.

    All feedback is appreciated!

    Many thanks
    Cilja

    (I know this is the Creative thread, but I couldn't figure out whether to put this here, in help or anywhere else...)

    What sort of look and feel are you going for, in regards to the new Greenfield district in Doha?

    We are going to have the area lush with flowers and hedges and foliage. (all streets named after herbs/plants) Some birch details - Street lights and such.
    I'm thinking the whole area is going to have a Park-like feel.

    Regarding the lower side rails, try replacing those dark oak/spruce fences with something more solid and/or horizontal.
    Maybe with cobblestone walls, or wood planks.
    Currently, the fences give off the feeling of being restricted.

    This might help you choose what to use for the side rails instead of fences.

    I think that the fence gates are a good quick alternative of the side rails, but if you want to push for a better alternative, you might find a good pattern with planks, stairs and slabs, maybe chuck in some fence gates I'm not sure.
    Also, I used birch in these images, if you feel like using dark woods then go ahead.


    edit: The dark upper side rails, hanging thingies:
    If you decide to change the lower side rails, you may want to also change the upper side rails.
    I would remove the upper side rails, and put something in the two open corners in each T.
    But having a reflection of the lower side rails could work too.

    Tought I should post an update.
    Here's the bridge using fence gates, it gave the the bridge a less jagged look.
    Also exchanged the middle roof fences with gates. Looks much smoother.

    Thanks for your input :)
