Completed in 2013
The pedestrian bridge connects cycle paths located on both banks of the Svratka River. The bridge forms a self‑anchored arch structure assembled from a concrete deck and a steel arch filled with concrete. The deck, which consists of a spine girder with ribbed overhangs, is suspended in the bridge axis on the arch of a trapezoidal cross‑section. As both the arch and bridge deck are fixed into the end abutments directly supported by drilled piles, the bridge forms an integral structural system.
