Abstract: New prestressed footbridge made from ultra - high performance concrete (UHPC) was installed in Čeperka village across Opatovicky channel. A precast UHPC girder was casted in the premises of Skanska company. As a part of a footbridge design, UHPC handrail panels were also made from coloured UHPC. Skanska and Pontex company with cooperation with Klokner institute developed matrix of UHPC used for footbridge construction. Material properties were verified during whole developing and producing process. During the girder casting a set of strain gauges were installed in order to obtain strains and deflections of the girder during storage, erection and operation of the footbridge’s girder. Actual contribution describes design, production and installation of footbridge. Main part of this paper is focused on results of long term monitoring of UHPC girder and also on visual monitoring of handrail. These measurements are very important in terms of long-term behaviour of the structure and also to gather experience about this favourable material.
