Final design of the bridge over the Lim River in Prijepolje

Realization: 2010

The road-pedestrian bridge is a continuous girder with 3 spans, L=30+41+30=101.0 m long in total, constructed of pre-stressed concrete. It is positioned at 150 m upstream from the confluence of Mileševka and Lim Rivers thus connecting Prijepolje with the left river bank and the area suitable for future development.


Due to low water level, the bridge was designed with small static height and formed of two parallel boxes to enable proper fitting of the road on both left and right river banks and to accommodate bridge deck and footways of adequate width.

Since the Lim River in this area shows typical properties of mountainous river characterized by high water level oscillations it demanded structures to be deeply founded in top quality materials, and therefore the studied bridge is founded in igneous rocks.

This bridge designed for road and pedestrian traffic is provided with 13.05 m wide deck. The bridge belongs to category of city bridges fully in accordance with trial loading test (120 t).
