The pedestrian walkways on either side of the road consist of 10 mm thick spanned bridge structures. Beneath the roadway the pedestrian walkways are connected to an additional walkway. This enables an extraordinary experience of the river below.The Kapfbridge has a total length of 50 m and is spanning 40 m.
