Odense Foot and Cycle Bridge strives to give shape to Odense Municipality's vision of a transport link for  cyclists and pedestrians across the railway, establishing a connection between the central city and new urban developments by the harbour. The functional requirements and the challenging conditions that prevail in connection with construction projects across railway lines together with the striking bridge design have made it obvious if not inevitable to build the 130m long bridge in steel.

The construction-related challenges have been turned into advantages: outside the track areas, stairs and ramps are produced from in-situ concrete, while the spans above the tracks are made from slender steel box girders. The longest free span is supported by a 40-metre steel pylon which has become a landmark not only for the bridge but for Odense, Denmark’s third-largest city.
