The bridge is a light-weight corten-steel trough footbridge with a total length of 200 meters and a main span of 40 meters across Jyllingevej in Rødovre, Denmark. Due to its low weight-to-span ratio, the structure is susceptible to human-induced vibrations. As such, the structure is designed with Tuned Mass Dampers for increased pedestrian comfort.
Vestvolden footbridge across Jyllingevej is a competition winner made by a consortium lead by Danpro/Persolit with Bystrup Architects and MOE and Krabbenhøft & Ingolfsson as engineering consultants.
