Pedestrian bridges or more commonly known as footbridges offer great access for pedestrians and cyclists by linking two distinct areas such as roads, mountainous terrain, rivers etc. Since time immemorial, these bridges have facilitated safe movement and with changing technology, these bridges have witnessed great improvements in terms of design, strength, structure and material used. Footbridges play a huge role in lifting the aesthetic appeal of the landscape, so modern designers have turned them into pieces of structural art and not just a simple structure linking two areas. At some places, these footbridges are just used to decoratively link two areas in a city. They are also located to let pedestrians cross roads without slowing down or disrupting the traffic such as pedestrian bridges near schools. Also some footbridges are made as such to ease the movement of workers to a part otherwise difficult to reach. These bridges are known as catwalks and are found in theatres and refineries.
