13. 10. 2017

The Institute of Transportation CIP, having recognized the importance of this unique project, prepared the complete technical documentation for the footbridge construction as donation to the City of Belgrade.

The footbridge linking the Belgrade Fortress and the Sava bank is the Project conceived under the name of "Kalemegdan Bridge" in the period 2006 - 2009 according to the concept proposed to the Belgrade Fortress PC by the team of authors: Richard Deacon, one of the most important sculptors of the time, Mrđan Bajić, our the most famous abstract sculptor and Branislav Mitrović, academician and architect.

 The footbridge between the Sava quay and the Belgrade Fortress consists of two parts, the winding ramp with a lift tower and a sculpture on the top, and a bridge structure.

 The winding ramp, 83 m long, 10 m high lift tower and the sculpture on the top represent an artistic sculptural form developed through several spirals that connects the promenade with the footbridge and parking area on the roof of "Concrete Hall". The footbridge, 75 m long passes over street and railway track and ends at the base of the Belgrade Fortress Grand Stairs.

 The footbridge connecting the city and the river is both the important infrastructure project and the work of art that will enable safe crossing for pedestrians over busy street and railway track.
