Paepargi pedestrian bridgePaepargi, Tallinn

The Paepargi bridge is 75 m long and 3 m wide. The weight of the bridge is supported by steel-pipe pylons, steel girders and a concrete walkway poured between them, supported by four pairs of steel cables. More attention than usual was devoted to architecture, and in cooperation with the structural engineer, the technically critical areas were made as imperceptible as possible. The bridge is illuminated at night by LED strips concealed in the handrails and the pylons are lighted by red LED spotlights.
