The bridge tread, reinforced concrete plate 6 m wide is suspended on the parabolic carrying steel-rope. From the static point of view, the supporting system for the bridge is a catenary, stiffened by prestressed tightening ropes blaced on the bottom side of the plate bridge tread. This system resulted in an exceptionally rational and attractive footbridge-which meets its purpose completely as well as high aesthetic criteria. Characteristics:

- total built surface 1,440 m2,

- maximum span 210 m

- road width 5 m,

- height of steel towers 30 m,

- high aerodynamic stability.
