Copenhagen to build 65 metre high pedestrian bridge

DANISH capital Copenhagen will mark the entrance to its harbour with a dizzying piece of infrastructure.

According to design and technology blog Gizmodo, the pedestrian bridge will provide a stunning connection between each side of the harbour for both tourists and residents.

Dubbed Copenhagen Gate, the bridge was designed by Steven Holl Architects and won the competition to connect both sides of the harbours.

The yellow and orange bridge will stand at 65 metres - tall enough for cruise ships to sail beneath it. The towers that hold it will be able to house many.

Being a cycling city, bikes will also be allowed on the bridge.

Construction of the Copenhagen Gate is set to begin next year.
