Footbridges are a symbol of soft transportation mode development in urban areas.
Like any other bridge, footbridges must be long enough to cross the obstacle below and high enough not to interfere with whatever passes beneath the bridge.
However, it is an increasingly common requirement for footbridges to be ‘landmark structures’. Therefore, the appearance of the structure is met with more attention than usual.
In most footbridge cases, a fairly light structure is required as the loads they carry are quite modest. This may result in some very innovative and unique forms of construction.
