Section Actions on footways cycle tracks and footbridges

1 Load models defined in this section are applicable to footways, cycle tracks and footbridges. 2 The uniformly distributed load qfk defined in 5.3.2.1 and the concentrated load Qwk defined in 5.3.2.2 should be used for road and railway bridges as well as for footbridges, where relevant see 4.5, 4.7.3 and 6.3.6.2 1 . All other variable actions and actions for accidental design situations defined in this section are intended only for footbridges. NOTE 1 For loads on access steps, see 6.3 in EN...
