The unique cable stayed footbridge with bridge deck made of ultra-high performance concrete (UHPC) was opened in 2014. The footbridge is unique because of the first large application of UHPC for load carrying structure in the Czech Republic as well as being the largest main span (156 m, 170,6 yd) of cable stayed bridge in the Czech Republic. This paper deals with UHPC development, verification of construction details and with footbridge construction.
