Abstract: A cable stayed footbridge over the Labe River in Čelákovice is the first structure in the Czech Republic, where the ultra high performance concrete (UHPC) was applied in a load carrying structure. The UHPC was developed from local materials. The self-compacting UHPC was delivered to the production plant as ready mixed concrete. Extensive testing of the material and of structural elements provided necessary data for design. The production technology of segments was developed. Large segments (11.3 m long) were assembled by cantilever method using a special launching gantry. The footbridge is a lightweight structure with long durability and low requirements on maintenance.
