Abstract: The footbridge under consideration in the paper (Fig. 1 ÷ 3) was the entry for an international competition for the design of a moveable pedestrian bridge [1, 2] over the Motława River in Gdańsk (Poland). The design competition has attracted great attention due to the prestigious location of the footbridge in the centre of the historic vibrant landscape of Gdańsk.

The footbridge over the Motława River which linked the Gdańsk Old Town and the Ołowianka Island was designed as a three-span structure. The footbridge comprises a short span on the side of the island of Ołowianka with a length of 9.50 m, the swing span of 49.0 m and a second short span on the side of the Old Town of 15.0 m in length. The navigation clearance between piers is 40 m and the total width is 6.80 m.

Keywords: conceptual design, cable-stayed structure, moveable footbridge
