Pedestrian Bridge, Masada

The cliff bridge in Masada was built immediately after the completion of the upper cable car station. It extends from the upper  terminal to the site entrance. It is 70 m' off the ground, and 2.5 m' wide.
 

The bridge allows handicap access to the site for the first time.

The bridge was planned from a steel space frame and a concrete deck, and is anchored to the mountain with horizontal anchors. Because there was no access to cranes or heavy equipment on the mountaintop, the bridge was built with small tools.
