The bridge is a structure built to span physical obstacles such as a body of water, for the purpose of providing passage over the obstacle.
It is designed for pedestrians and cyclists, rather than vehicular traffic. Footbridges complement the landscape and can be used decoratively to visually link two distinct areas or to signal a transaction.
Footbridges can be both functional and beautiful works of art and sculpture in there own right as seen in some of the most visited countries around world.
Amsterdam is the capital of the Netherlands and has a population of approximately 1.5 million. It has been called the “Venice of the North” for its more than one hundred kilometres of canals, about 90 islands and 1,500 bridges.
The 17th-century canals located in the heart of the city of Amsterdam were added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in July 2010.
