The new bridge for pedestrians and cyclists across Savinja replaced a former footbridge which was placed low over the river and posed a constant risk of flooding for the city. The location of the new footbridge lies on the axis connecting the Museum square in front of the Central Library on the left bank, with the promenade in the town park on the right bank of the Savinja River. In a wider context the footbridge connects the medieval town center on the left bank with the town park on the right bank. On the right bank the existing footbridge connects to footpaths and bicycle paths running along Partizanska street, on the left bank it intersects Badovinčeva street and connects to the foot path along the Savinja embankment, and across the Museum square into the system of footpaths and bicycle paths throughout the town.
