Pedestrians and cyclists can travel faster and safer between the two districts. The Štvanice footbridge, which has just opened to public, sports a number of unique architectural and technological features. Bridge experts used a unique white ultra-high-performance concrete for the 300-meter structure whose last span on the Holešovice side can be lifted to withstand once-in-a-millennium flood waters. In addition, the footbridge is complemented by works of art. The construction cost roughly 352 million CZK. With the opening of the Štvanice footbridge, Prague discontinued the P7 ferry that used to connect the river banks in this area until now.
The footbridge provides an easy way for for pedestrians and cyclists to cross the river between Prague 7 and Prague 8 districts, with direct access to the island of Štvanice from the footbridge. The three hundred meters long structure made of white ultra-high performance concrete with anti-graffiti coating is special by its curvature. The construction commenced in January 2022. The walking width is four meters, narrowing to three meters at the offramp to the island of Štvanice. The bridge is illuminated by LED strips integrated in the handrail to minimize light pollution. As an interesting design detail, the end of the handrail is decorated with horse forms on the Karlín side, with bull forms on the Holešovice side, and with hare forms on Štvanice island.
