Abstract: This paper presents the conception and general design of an innovative and slender pedestrian and cycling bridge currently under construction over the river Mondego, in the city of Coimbra, Portugal. This unique bridge is a remarkable structure that will open new challenges into the conception and design of footbridges without resource to expensive and decorative structural solutions. The bridge displays innovative characteristics and a complex dynamic behaviour.
