The footbridge is 325 m long and constructed of three main sections (81 m, 144 m and 108 m). The bridge sections are suspended from a unique cable system only 2.3 m high on the main 144 m section. This gives the Millennium Bridge its characteristic appearance.
The bridge deck is made of extruded tube-shaped aluminiumfootbridge profiles 200 mm wide.
The longest bridge profile was 13 m, and 1,700 profiles were supplied for the project. The profile is also incorporated into other bridge constructions, so it can also be seen in Aarhus and Ireland.
