Detailed design of the new bridge over the Sava River in Krško handed over to the client

We finished and handed over a detailed design of the new pedestrian and cyclist bridge that spans the Sava River to its client, Municipality of Krško (Slovenia). The steel arch structure with a 109.5 meter long suspended cycle and pedestrian deck will connect the old town centre of Krško with its western part (Videm) on the left bank of the Sava River.

The footbridge is designed as an arched structure that crosses the Sava River in a single span. Due to the asymmetry of the bridging conditions, the structure itself is designed in this sense; on the right bank, where the foundation has already been made and the basic geometry of the arched structure has been defined, the arch consists of two separate sections. These merge at the apex into a uniform cross-section that continues to the left bank. The geometry of the superstructure is designed in such a way that it runs between divided arches on the right bank, while the structure widens and retracts to the arched structure and on the left bank, indicating the directions of connection to the multipurpose path running parallel to the Sava River.

The estimated construction time is two years, including the construction of steel structure. The client has already obtained a building permit.
