Raudsild (0.32 km)

Raudsild (Iron Bridge) was a footbridge across Emajõgi in Tartu, Estonia, which was opened on 3 June 1993, and dismantled again in 2007. The pedestrian bridge had a minor design flaw, which made it gyrate noticeably at even minor impacts, like a normal sized person jumping or running across it. The bridge was taken apart in 2007 to be replaced by Vabaduse Bridge, a 3-lane traffic bridge opened in the summer of 2009. The bridge will eventually be moved upstream and re-assembled for pedestrian traffic. As of spring 2011, no action has been taken in this regards.
