The Golda Meir Steg, a new footbridge in the centre of Berlin bridging across the old Berlin Wall, is finally in place. The 200t deck structure was assembled by Streicher in Bavaria, on the banks of the Danube river, throughout September. After a 1,600km barge journey, up the Danube and down the Rhine, traveling over 12 days through 64 locks, the boat carrying the bridge deck finally arrived in Berlin.

The 78m long bridge deck was designed to be impossibly thin. With a thickness of only 20cm, the bridge is held aloft by the steel handrail with a lasercut pattern of interlocking circles. Over the next few months, the new town square will be completed, with a ceremonial opening scheduled for Mid 2021.
